| April 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

BaysoxThe Baysox (9-8) snapped a three-game losing streak with a dominating 9-4 win over the Erie SeaWolves (6-9) Monday night. Five Baysox players recorded multi-hit games as the offense scored as many runs as it had in the past three losses combined.

“We hit throughout the lineup, top to bottom, similar to what we were doing at the beginning of the year,” said Manager Gary Kendall. “We put the ball in play and applied pressure on [Erie]. There was a lot of hard contact out there and good baserunning – Romero tagging from first to second on a fly ball.”

Baysox starter Tyler Wilson threw six innings and allowed two runs on five hits while walking one and striking out a season-high nine in the win.

“Wilson did a really good job,” Kendall said. “Nine punchouts in six innings was impressive and he really went after guys. He is very consistent in what he does. He is always around the plate and he battles.”

The Baysox struck first in the bottom of the third inning against Erie starter Tommy Collier. Ronald Bermudez hit a one-out double to right-center field and scored on a Buck Britton single to shallow right field to give Bowie a 1-0 lead.

Erie came right back to take the lead in the top of the fourth inning against Wilson. Ramon Cabrera hit a one-out single to right field and Steven Moya followed with a home run to center field to give the SeaWolves a 2-1 lead.

Bowie retook the lead 3-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning. With one out, Dariel Alvarez hit a solo home run over the fence in left-center field. Michael Ohlman drew a two-out walk, moved to second base on an infield single by K.D. Kang and scored when Garabez Rosa reached on a force attempt and throwing error by Erie third baseman Wade Gaynor.

The Baysox added to the lead in the bottom of the fifth inning. Britton started things off with a solo home run that bounced off the left field foul pole. Niuman Romero then drew a walk and Chih-Hsien Chiang brough him home with a one-out double to right-center field that made the score 5-2.

Bowie blew the game open in the bottom of the sixth inning against Erie reliever Nick Avila. With the bases loaded and one out, Romero hit a two-RBI single to right field and Christian Walker followed with a single to load the bases. With two outs, Chiang brought home two more runs with a single to center field to make the score 9-2.

Erie got two runs back in the top of the ninth inning against Baysox reliever Steve Hensley. Moya drew a one-out walk and Gaynor followed with a double to left field. Moya scored on a groundout by Dean Green and Corey Jones brought Gaynor home with a single to right-center field to make the score 9-4.

Baysox reliever Marcel Prado pitched two scoreless innings for the Baysox, not allowing a baserunner and striking out two. Hensley pitched one inning and allowed two runs on two hits while walking two and striking out one.

Collier took the loss for Erie, pitching five innings and allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits while striking out one and walking two.
