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.

The Bowie Baysox couldn't get the momentum swinging their way in their first loss of the season in Harrisburg.
The Bowie Baysox struck out in their season opener Thursday night—literally. Four Harrisburg pitchers combined to fan 15 Bowie hitters as the host Senators blanked the Baysox, 5-0, in the season opener for both teams. Bowie had its chances but went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left five on base. Bowie starter Chorye Spoone—a Pasadena, MD native—went three innings and gave up three runs on three hits with three strikeouts. But he walked five batters, two of which came in a three-run third inning that gave Harrisburg the lead for good. The four Bowie pitchers walked a total of eight batters. The Baysox finished with five hits while Harrisburg had just four. But Bowie couldn’t come through with key hits at the right times. “…
The Bowie Baysox released the official roster for the 2011 season on Thursday, their first game of the season.

The Bowie Baysox are holding open auditions to sing the national anthem at one of their 71 home games this season.
Singing the national anthem in front of a crowd before a professional sporting event is an opportunity that doesn't come around every day, but the Baysox are giving area performers a chance with open auditions next month. Roughly between 50 and 100 people show up each year to try out, said Tom Sedlack, communications director for the Baysox, in an e-mail. "Last year we had 66 people audition on a cold, rainy day. The year before on a beautiful Saturday morning, 103 turned out," he said. There is a live performance of the national anthem before each of the team's home games—there are 71 in the 2011 season—and the Baysox encourage anybody to try out. They accept soloists, small groups, even instrumentalists. "Anyone who registers and …
