The Sharks were victorious for the third straight game behind the arm of emerging hurler Will Warren as he struck out seven in a 7-3 triumph over the North Adams SteepleCats Sunday night.

Centerfielder Matt Chamberlain was perfect at the plate with four singles, two runs batted in and two runs scored. Brady Slavens also saw the ball well driving in two runs on two hits, with a run scored and a stolen base in the Sharks winning effort.

Warren went for six innings and earned his first win of the year after holding the North Adams SteepleCats to two hits while not surrendering a walk, or an earned run. In his last start, Warren threw six innings of hitless baseball before a lightning delay ended his bid at a no-hitter.

Chamberlain got the scoring started for the Sharks after they fell behind by a run early. The Sharks outfielder picked up his first RBI of the game on his second hit which scored Michael Knell tying the score at one after the third inning.

The Sharks took the lead in the fifth inning on a Rudy Aguilar single that scored Knell, then Chamberlain’s third single of the game brought home shortstop Nander De Sedas making it 3-1 Sharks.

The Sharks would go on to score three more times in the fifth, one run coming on an error and the other two on an Alan Burnsed single following a perfectly executed double steal.

The SteepleCats fought back in the eighth, nabbing two runs back on a double and infield single. But North Adams’s rally was stifled when the Sharks infield caught SteepleCats outfielder Tre Kirkland trying to advance from second following a throw in from the outfield.

The Sharks sent right-handed sidearmer Marc Mendel to the mound to complete the win over the northern division-leading SteepleCats, and the sophomore from the University of Kansas did just that with a 1-2-3 inning.

With the victory, the Sharks improve to 8-8 on the season and are four games back from southern division leader Danbury.

Following two victories on the road against the Mystic Schooners and the Holyoke-based Valley Blue Sox the Sharks bounced back from a three-game skid and look to continue their winning ways this afternoon and tonight.

They play two seven-inning games in a doubleheader against the Ocean State Waves of South Kingstown, R.I. at the Shark Tank today at 3:30 and 7 p.m.
