Baysox 2016The Baysox and the Flying Squirrels played their series finale today and the Baysox cruised to a 6-2 victory. Starter David Hess threw six innings and struck out a season-high six batters without allowing an earned run while surrendering just one hit. In his 2016 Baysox debut, Sharlon Schoop went 1-for-3 with two runs scored and two walks.

The Baysox wasted no time in starting right where they left off after Friday night’s 13-hit performance. Four consecutive singles starting with Chance Sisco and ending with Quincy Latimore plated two early runs for the Baysox. With a runner on third, Garabez Rosa hit a sac-fly to grant Bowie the 3-0 lead after one inning.

Borbon extended his hit-streak to 10 games with a two-out single in the bottom of the second inning. After Sharlon Schoop walked, Sisco singled to right field to bring Borbon home and give the Baysox a 4-0 advantage. 

The Baysox refused to let up and were on the attack again the bottom of the fourth frame. Drew Dosch hit a lead-off single to right field and moved to second base on a Borbon sacrifice bunt. Schoop followed with a single to right field and Dosch scored on the play following an error by Richmond right fielder Hunter Cole. Sisco then doubled to right field and Joey Terdoslavich reached on a fielding error by first baseman Chris Shaw that allowed Schoop to score and give the Baysox a 6-0 lead. 

Richmond finally answered the Baysox offense in the fifth inning. Ryder Jones drew a one-out walk and Carlos Moncrief followed with Richmond’s first single of the game against Baysox starter David Hess. With two outs, Darren Ford reached on an error by Dosch at third base that allowed Jones to score and cut the Baysox lead to 6-1. 

In the top of the ninth inning, with one out, Chris Shaw doubled off of Baysox reliever Bobby Bundy and scored on a Cole single to right field to make the final score 6-2. 

Hess threw six innings and allowed one unearned run on one hit and two walks while striking out six in the win. Reliever Michael Zouzalik threw two scoreless innings, not allowing a hit and walking one batter. Bundy pitched the ninth inning and allowed one run on two hits with two strikeouts.

Beede took the loss for Richmond, throwing five innings and allowing six runs on 12 hits with three strikeouts and three walks.
