Jonathan Bermudez Shines in Skeeters Win over Albuquerque
(SUGAR LAND, Texas) - Jonathan Bermudez allowed just one hit through six scoreless innings to help lead the Sugar Land Skeeters to a 2-1 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes on Friday night at Constellation Field.

Ronnie Dawson opened the scoring with a two-run double in the fifth inning. Marty Costes led off the fifth with a walk, followed by a single from Michael Papierski, leading up to the two-run double from Dawson. Papierski finished the night 2-for-3, with a pair of singles.
The Isotopes made it a one-run game in the eighth on an RBI single from Ryan Vilade. Taylor Snyder opened the inning with a triple to set up Vilade's run-scoring single.
Chad Donato pitched the final three innings of the night, picking up his first save of the season. He allowed a run on three hits and struck out a batter without issuing a walk.
