Cameron Saso got his first hit for the Humboldt Crabs on Friday night, but the team lost for the first time this summer, falling 8-6 to the San Luis Obispo Blues at the Arcata Ball Park.
The Crabs, who are now 3-1, rallied to score three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning after the Blues had broke open a tight game with five runs in the top of the fifth.
Saso, a former McKinleyville Panther who reached the California JC state championships this spring with Lake Folsom College, finished 1-for-4.
Unfortunately for the Crabs, they had more errors than hits (6-5).
Brodsky took the loss, allowing three hits and three walks.
Only two of the Blues’ runs were earned.
The two teams will continue a three-game weekend series on Saturday night at 6:30 p.m.
