The Baysox grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first as Cedric Mullins led off with a single, went to second on a walk, took third on a single and scored on Ademar Rifaela’s RBI groundout.

Mullins’ single extended his hitting streak to 12 games, the longest by a Baysox since Garabez Rosa had a 12-gamer from July 19-30, 2017.

Rumble Ponies starter Christian James (0-1) gave up one run on three hits to go along with a walk and four strikeouts in 4.0 IP.

In the top of the fifth, a single and a walk put two men on and Corban Joseph reached on a throwing error charged to Binghamton 2B Jeff McNeil later in the frame which allowed a pair of runs to score and stretch the Bowie lead to 3-0.

Both runs were charged to Binghamton RHP Adonis Uceta (2.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, K).

Joseph led off the eighth with a double, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on Ryan Mountcastle’s RBI single to make it a 4-0 game in favor of the Baysox.

Four consecutive doubles from Erick Salcedo, Mullins, Anderson Feliz and Joseph plated three runs and gave Bowie a 7-0 advantage.

Joseph (3-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, R), Mullins (4-5, 2B, 3B, 3 R) and Salcedo (2-4, 2B, R) all had multi-hit games for manager Gary Kendall’s squad. The four hits for Mullins tied a career-high, the sixth four-hit game of his career and first since June 24, 2017 at Erie.

The series wraps up on Monday at 2:05 p.m. as LHP Jayson Aquino (2-2, 6.88) gets the start for Bowie against Binghamton RHP Marcos Molina (1-4, 6.14).
