Baysox FieldDavid Hess was firmly in control throughout, striking out five in six innings of shutout baseball as the Baysox defeated Richmond 5-0 on Saturday evening at The Diamond.
The shutout victory was the first for the Baysox this season. Hess did not allow a runner into scoring position with fewer than two outs in the impressive effort. He has now allowed three earned runs or less in five of six appearances. Jesus Liranzo was solid with two hitless innings and Garrett Cleavinger closed out the game with a scoreless ninth inning.
The Baysox broke through offensively in the top of the fourth inning. Aderlin Rodriguez ended a stretch of 22 homerless games with a deep drive to left field. The solo shot was his fifth home run of the year. Later in the inning, a clutch two-out RBI-single from Erick Salcedo gave Bowie a 2-0 lead.
In the fifth inning, the Baysox blew the game open. After Tucker Nathans registered the second of his four singles on the night, Adrian Marin doubled over the left fielder’s head. Nathan raced around to score to up the advantage to 3-0. After a run scored on an errant throw to the plate later in the inning, Garabez Rosa finished the scoring with an RBI-double to right to lead 5-0.
