In the third, Cedric Mullins stole second base after reaching on a fielder’s choice. Anderson Feliz followed with an RBI double, extending the Bowie advantage to 2-0.

The Flying Squirrels got a run on a solo home run in the bottom of the third from Zach Houchins, cutting the score to 2-1. The score held there in until the fifth, when the Baysox put up two runs to lengthen their lead. Mason McCoy led off the inning with a walk and moved to third on a single from Cedric Mullins. Feliz then singled, driving in McCoy to make it 3-1. Perez followed with an RBI groundout to bring in Mullins and extend the lead to 4-1.
