Baysox FieldRHP David Hess tossed a career-high eight shutout innings and the Bowie Baysox (68-62) blanked the Altoona Curve (69-61) by a score of 2-0 on Friday night at Peoples Natural Gas Field in Altoona.

Hess (11-8) gave up just one hit while walking one and fanning five over his eight innings of work. RHPScott McGough (1.0 IP, H) tossed a scoreless ninth to notch his 12th save.

Hess is the third Baysox pitcher in the last five seasons to win more than 10 games after RHP Mike Wright (11) did so in 2013 and RHP Terry Doyle (12) accomplished the feat in 2015.

The Baysox got on the board with a run in the second as DJ Stewart drew a one out walk, advanced to second on a walk, went to third on a single and scored on Erick Salcedo’s two-out RBI single.

Altoona starter J.T. Brubaker (7-5) allowed the one run on two hits to go along with five walks and seven strikeouts in 6.0 IP.

Stewart (1-2, 2B, 2 BB, 2 R) doubled to start the ninth, went to third on a bunt single and scored later in the frame on Austin Wynns’ sac fly to open up a 2-0 lead for Bowie. The run was charged to RHP Tate Scioneaux (1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, K).

The series continues on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. as LHP John Means (9-8, 4.24) gets start for the Baysox against Curve LHP Brandon Waddell (3-3, 3.88).
