Baysox Lose Pitcher’s Duel To Senators

| April 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

BaysoxThe Baysox (11-12) managed just three hits and were shutout for the first time this season in a 1-0 loss to the Harrisburg Senators (11-12) Sunday afternoon. Harrisburg took two games in the three game series.

The game was a pitcher’s duel as both starting pitchers recorded quality starts. Harrisburg starter Blake Treinen threw six and two-thirds shutout innings and allowed three hits while striking out six and walking three in the win.

Baysox starter Kevin Gausman pitched seven and two-thirds innings and allowed just one run on five hits while striking out eight in the loss.

“Yesterday we played 13 innings so I knew I was going to have to go deeper in the game than I normally would, but that didn’t change my approach at all – I still tried to throw strikes,” Gausman said. “Really what I’ve been doing all season is getting ahead. Today I tried to focus on expanding the zone with two strikes.”

Harrisburg scored the only run of the game in the top of the second inning against Gausman. Justin Bloxom hit a lead off double to left field, moved to third base on a groundout and scored on a sacrifice fly by Sandy Leon to make the score 1-0.

Harrisburg closer Aaron Barrett pitched the ninth inning for Harrisburg to record his second save in as many games.

RHP Devin Jones (0-1, 5.17) takes the mound for the Baysox tomorrow as the team begins a four game home series with the Richmond Flying Squirrels. He will be opposed by LHP Jack Snodgrass (3-0, 2.01).

The Baysox are home through Thursday, May 2 for a seven game home stand. Highlights include Mutt Monday at 7:05 p.m. April 29 and Tightwad Tuesday beginning at 7:05 p.m. April 30.
