Baysox 2013IMG_9949The Baysox got a strong start from knuckleballer Eddie Gamboa but could not get the bats going in a 2-0 loss to New Britain Tuesday night.

After being shutout one time in their first 90 games of the year, the Baysox have been shutout eight times in their last 31 games.

Gamboa was outstanding after a rocky first inning. He walked the bases loaded but got out of the jam getting a pop out to short to end the inning. He would not walk another batter in his seven inning effort.

The lone blemish came in the fourth inning. With two outs and nobody aboard, LF Tony Thomas beat out a soft roller to shortstop. That set the table for the big first baseman Mike Gonzales who lifted a long home run to right-center field to bring New Britain a 2-0 lead.

Bowie had threatened in each of the first two innings but did not have another hit until the eighth inning. With one down, C David Freitas doubled to the wall in right-center field. Later in the frame with two down, 3B Niuman Romero walked to put the tying run aboard. 2B Buck Britton then lined the ball towards the middle but it was snared by the shortstop Jorge Polanco and the inning was over.

The Baysox are right back at it Wednesday, August 13th at 7:05 p.m. with LHP Nick Additon on the hill for his second Bowie start. Coverage will start for Bowie with coverage beginning 20-minutes prior to first pitch on wnav.com.

Bowie returns home for Military Appreciation Night presented by Andrews Federal Credit Union on Friday, August 15th against Trenton at 6:35 p.m. The first 1,000 fans will get a card set composed of local military heroes and fireworks will follow the game.
