The Baysox got out of an eighth inning jam and then plated a run on a Glynn Davis ninth inning sacrifice fly to win 6-5 in Erie on Thursday night.
With the game tied at 5-apiece, Erie had runners at second and third and no outs in the eighth inning. Eric Fornataro got a groundball out with the infield in and then intentionally walked Corey Jones to load the bases. That set the table for Bobby Bundy who got out of the inherited jam.
Bundy fell down 3-0 in the count to Gustavo Nunez. On a 3-2 pitch, Nunez chopped a groundball to first baseman Joey Terdoslavich who fired home to get the force out. Next man up, Jason Krizan popped out to shortstop and the crises was averted.
Bowie got the tie-breaking run in the ninth inning as two walks and an infield single set the table. With the bases loaded and one out, Glynn Davis hit a sacrifice fly to right field in a nine-pitch at-bat. Terdoslavich slid ahead of the throw and the Baysox had the lead.
Bowie led twice prior. The Baysox had a 2-0 lead on a two-RBI triple by Drew Dosch in the second inning. Later in a tie game, Quincy Latimore launched a three-run home run to put the Baysox atop 5-3 in the 6th.
Chris Lee got the start and picked up his first no-decision of the season. He worked six innings, allowing just two runs on seven hits. Bowie is 6-0 in Lee’s outings. Jason Stoffel picked up his eighth save of the season working a 1-2-3 ninth inning.
