Richmond edges Baysox out of final playoff spot by one-half game in frustrating ending
The Baysox had to deal with two of the toughest things in baseball—blowing a late-season lead and then just missing the playoffs on the final day thanks to something weird with the rules. Bowie held the lead for the final playoff spot in the Eastern League’s Western Division but faded badly down the stretch. The Baysox lost eight of 10 to knock themselves into third place, and even though they won the final two games after that slide, Richmond took the final playoff spot by a half-game. But Richmond needed a break from the rules to take that playoff spot. The Flying Squirrels held a half-game lead over the Baysox heading into the final day. If Richmond lost and Bowie won, the Baysox would make the playoffs. Mother Nature then stepped in. …

Bowie has won four of its last five games after starting just 1-4.
After a less than stellar start to the season, the Baysox have started to turn the corner during the past several games. Following losses in four of its first five games, Bowie has now won four of its last five heading into Monday’s game against visiting Akron. The Baysox fell to Erie, 2-1, in the second game of Sunday’s double-header after beating the SeaWolves, 11-7, earlier in the day, a game during which Bowie erased a seven-run fourth inning deficit. Trailing 7-0, the Baysox scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning before tallying eight more in the fifth, an inning capped by outfielder Jeff Fiorentino’s 3-run home run. Bowie defeated Erie 9-8 Friday and 2-1 Thursday. Earlier in the week, the Baysox dropped the first two …

Richmond jumps ahead early and holds on for 4-2 victory over Bowie in the first of the three-game series.
The Baysox struggled again on offense Monday night as Richmond jumped ahead early and pulled out a 4-2 victory in an Eastern League game. The Flying Squirrels scored three runs in the first two innings and, even though they didn't get on the board again after the fourth, that was enough to beat Bowie (1-3) in the opener of a three-game series. Bowie got a solo homer from Brandon Waring in the second and an RBI single from Jeff Fiorentino in the third. But the Baysox never scored again. Tim Bascom (0-1) gave up four runs on nine hits in five innings. But Wynn Pelzer came on in relief for Bowie and threw three perfect innings. The two teams meet again Tuesday night in Richmond.
