Bowie ended up on the wrong side of another tight game as the Baysox fell in the series finale in Altoona 5-3 on Sunday night. With the loss the Baysox dropped three of four in the series and 8 of 11 to Altoona in 2016.
Starter David Hess had a strong bounceback outing. After allowing a career-high nine runs on Tuesday evening in Harrisburg, Hess worked into the seventh inning, allowed four runs with just three earned in the tough luck loss.
The Baysox had opportunities. Down 2-1 in the sixth inning, the Baysox left the bases loaded in the inning. Altoona then jumped on Bowie scoring three times in the seventh with two of the three runs being unearned.
Bowie scored twice in the eighth inning on a two-out, two-run single from Joey Terdoslavich to make it 5-3 but that would be as close as they would get.
Tucker Nathans had a three-hit night. Garabez Rosa saw his 11-game hit streak come to an end. The hit streak was tied for the second longest of the season for a Baysox player. Bobby Bundy allowed an unearned run in 1 and 2/3rd’s innings. Hess struck out six Altoona batters in the defeat.
Bowie returns home for Independence Day Monday, July 4th at 6:35 p.m. with Matthew Grimes on the hill for his Eastern League debut against the Trenton Thunder.
