With severe showers advancing through the Houston metropolitan area and after a two-hour rain delay, the Sugar Land Skeeters were unable to overcome a three-run Somerset assault in the first inning and dropped a 4-0 decision to the Patriots on Friday evening, May 9, 2014.

The 6,656 fans in attendance at Constellation Field saw the Skeeters get on base five times but fail to get any runners past second base.

Sugar Land starting pitcher David Pauley lasted six innings; giving up four hits and three runs, all of them earned, along with striking out five and walking four in the loss.

Right handed pitcher Jared Wells pitching one inning in relief, gave up two hits and a single run to close out the game.

Shortstop Dominic Ramos continued his success at the plate, hitting .385 in nine games while Wells gave up his first run of the season pitching in relief.

The Skeeters will continue their home stand on Saturday, May 10, 2014 when they again face the Patriots in the fourth game of their six game series with a 6:05 p.m. first pitch.

Those in attendance on Saturday evening will see the professional baseball debut of former NBA All-Star and Houston Rocket Tracy McGrady, who will take to the mound for the Skeeters.

McGrady will be facing Somerset LHP Matt Zielinski, who is 1-0 in 2014 with a 0.96 ERA.

The Skeeters are currently 6-8 for the season and 3-5 at home.

Somerset raised its record after Friday evening game to 9-5 on the season.
