With Dean Kremer promoted to Triple-A Norfolk to make his International League debut, Cody Sedlock stepped into his spot in the rotation and was in control. Sedlock worked from ahead in the count through an efficient five inning appearance en route to his first Eastern League win.
Perez and Mullins would be heard from again. Perez hit a solo home run into the left field bleachers in the sixth inning. His 12th of the year put Bowie atop 4-1. An inning later, Mullins rocketed a line drive around the right field foul pole to lift the Baysox to a 6-1 lead.
Erie was a 5-1 winner over Akron so the Baysox remain two games back with 17 games remaining. The Baysox got three-hit nights from both Perez and Willy Yahn in the win. Steve Klimek worked 2 and 1/3rd scoreless innings and Zach Muckenhirn wrapped up the game stranding the bases loaded for his fifth save of the year.
The Baysox continue their three-game series in Altoona Saturday, August 17th with Zac Lowther on the hill. Coverage begins 20-minutes prior to first pitch on wnav.com, baysox.com and via the Tune-In Radio app by searching Baysox.
