Trailing 3-2, the Baysox tied it with a run in the 11th as Erick Salcedo drew a leadoff walk, took second on a sac bunt, went to third on an infield single and scored on Austin Wynns’ RBI groundout.

Zach Cox’s two-out RBI single in the top half of the inning had given Erie a lead for the time being. The run was charged to RHP Ryan Meisinger (2.0 IP, 2 H, R, ER, 2 BB, 3 K).

Wilkerson’s solo shot in the home half of the fourth gave the Baysox a 1-0 lead. The home run was Wilkerson’s third of the season.
