BaysoxThe Baysox dropped a doubleheader to Harrisburg Sunday evening from FNB Field as two tight contests both went to the Senators. Harrisburg held off a late Baysox rally in the opener 5-4 and walked off in the nightcap as Bowie fell, 4-3.

Game One – Harrisburg 5, Bowie 4

Dillon Tate made his Orioles organizational debut making his first start since July 5th. He struggled early allowing two runs in the first inning, albeit just one earned. After a bounce back second inning in which he struck out the side in order, Tate allowed two runs in the third inning. Senators Raudy Read doubled home two runs to push Harrisburg on top 4-1.

Tate finished the day having allowed five runs, four earned in 5 and 1/3rd innings. He threw 86 pitches, 56 for strikes.

Bowie trailed 5-1 to the seventh and final inning. An inning that provided a stirring comeback attempt. Aderlin Rodriguez hit a hard groundball off of the shortstop Carter Kieboom ruled an error. Consecutive walks followed to load the bases. With one down, Martin Cervenka than laced a bases clearing double to right-center field. The drive moved Bowie within 5-4 and moved Cervenka to second base.

In came reliever Dakota Bacus. Corban Joseph nearly tied the game in a pinch hitting role. He hit a hard groundball near the first base line. Senators Dan Gamache dove to glove and got the out with Cervenka getting third base. Ryan McKenna then struck out in a six-pitch at bat to end the game.

Game Two – Harrisburg 4, Bowie 3

Dean Kremer made his second start with Bowie in the Orioles system and started out strong with four scoreless innings. The Baysox rewarded him with an early lead.

The Baysox got a run on three hits in the first and then rallied again in the third inning. Ademar Rifaela doubled over the right fielder’s head on the first pitch of the frame. Next up was McKenna who tripled over the head of the centerfielder to the wall. Rifaela scored and McKenna would one batter later on a sac fly from Corban Joseph. Bowie led 3-0.

But Kremer struggled a bit with command to start the fifth inning. He walked the first two batters and got behind Khayyan Norfork and a 3-1 fastball was hit for a game-tying three-run home run to left field to tie the game at 3.

Each team threatened to score following before the game’s bizarre conclusion. Harrisburg’s Hunter Jones was at first base with two down in the seventh inning. He took off to attempt to steal second and the throw went into center. It then went skidding under the glove of McKenna and Jones came all the way around to score the winning run. SS Anderson Feliz and McKenna were both given errors.
