A dramatic 9th inning home run from Chris O’Brien sent the Sunday tilt to extras but in the end Harrisburg came out on top 5-4.
Bowie trailed 4-0 into the seventh inning. With the bases loaded and two down, Adrian Marin singled home two runs to cut the deficit in half at 4-2. Glynn Davis doubled to leadoff the eighth inning and scored on an RBI-single to make it 4-3.
That set the table for O’Brien who launched the first pitch of his ninth inning at-bat for a game-tying home run. The line drive shot to right field came with two down in the ninth inning. It was O’Brien’s second of the year.
Bowie’s bullpen followed the six inning outing from Parker Bridwell beautifully. Bobby Bundy, Donnie Hart, Stefan Crighton and Jason Stoffel worked scoreless outings and the game continued at 4-apiece into the 13th inning.
Bowie could not convert after Glynn Davis doubled to leadoff the top of the inning and Harrisburg took advantage. Shawn Pleffner singled off of Baysox reliever Genison Reyes. A bunt by Brian Jeroloman was thrown away by first baseman Joey Terdoslavich and two batters later a sacrifice fly to center by Rafael Bautista ended it.
The loss was a fourth in a row for Bowie. It was also the eighth in nine games and 11th in 14 for the Baysox. Bowie remains tied for fourth place with Erie.
