Bowie down 3-0 through six
Bowie set for Game 2 against Erie
Through six innings of play at Prince George’s Stadium and the Erie SeaWolves hold a 3-0 lead. In fact, Bowie has been held to just two hits all evening so far, which belong to second baseman Jonathan Schoop and an infield single from center fielder Antoan Richardson.
The ‘Sox had the bases loaded in the first inning thanks to Schoop’s single and a couple of walks, but first baseman Tyler Townsend lined out to center to end the scoring threat with zero damage done.
Starter Tim Bascom has been replaced by reliever Eddie Gamboa. In six innings of work, Bascom exited the game with a statline of 7 hits, 3 earned runs, 2 BB and 2 Ks on 89 pitches.
After improving to 6-9 with a series-opening win over the Erie SeaWolves last night, the ‘Sox are set to take the field for the second of four games.
Tim Bascom (2-0, 3.50 ERA) will be on the mound for the 7:05 p.m. est first pitch.
Two Washington Mystics (WNBA) player are in attendance for tonight’s game, as well. Natasha Lacey and Ashley Robinson of the Mystics were two of the people to throw out the ceremonial first pitches.
We are now about 15 minutes from game time.
‘Sox Split Series in Erie
Caleb Joseph’s homer in Sunday’s 7-5 win. The team also received round tripper’s from Brandon Waring (Bowie’s all-time HR leader) and Zelous Wheeler.
Two Straight for Bowie
The Baysox’ 7-5 victory Sunday against the Erie SeaWolves gave them a split in the four-game weekend series.
Over the four-game span Bowie hit six homers, including Tyler Townsend’s fourth of the year in an 11-10 extra inning loss on Saturday afternoon.
Now in Akron, Bowie begins a three-game series with the Aeros. They will then be back in town on Thursday evening for another four games against Erie. I will be continuing my coverage from the press box at Prince George’s Stadium for Thursday’s 7:05 game.
The Baysox (3-5) opened a seven-game road trip by registering another 16+ hit game on the way to a 6-1 victory over the Erie SeaWolves.
Hitting in the leadoff spot, Buck Britton went 5-for-6 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored. Normally at third base, Britton made the start at left field while Zelous Wheeler made his Bowie debut at the hot corner.
Wheeler, acquired off waivers from Milwaukee at the end of March, went 2-for-6 with a run scored in the game.
Bowie left 15 runners on base, but received productivity from the top and bottom of the lineup. Five different hitters managed multi-hit games and runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings were enough support for Jacob Pettitt to pick up his first win of the season after a solid six innings (4 hits, 1 earned run).
The four-game set with Erie will continue Friday evening at 6:35 pm (EST).
