BOWIE, Md. – Michael Baumann tossed a no-hitter to help the Bowie Baysox defeat the Harrisburg Senators, 6-0, in front of 3,384 at Prince George's Stadium Tuesday night. Making his first Double-A start at home, the righty walked a pair of batters and struck out 10 to complete the first nine-inning no-hitter for the Baysox since Radhames Liz achieved the feat on June 1, 2007, against the Senators. Baumann threw no more than 16 pitches in an inning and tossed single-digit pitches five times. The no-hitter was also the third by a single Baysox pitcher in franchise history. Bowie (20-5) broke the seal off the pitcher's duel in the sixth inning. With one out, Ryan McKenna grounded a single to left field for his 42nd RBI of the season. Mason McCoy, who reached on an infield single, scored when reliever Brad Boxberger cut off the relay throw a few steps in front of home plate. The hosts busted the game open with a five-run sixth inning to inflate their lead to 6-0. A pair of singles set the stage for T.J. Nichting, who sent an opposite-field two-run double over the head of Rafael Bautista in left field to score Jesmuel Valentin and Preston Palmeiro. Two batters later, Cedric Mullins reached on fly ball double off the glove of a diving Luis Garcia to score Nichting. McKenna grounded his second RBI single of the game one pitch later to drive in Mullins. After a Yusniel Diaz single, Carlos Perez grounded another RBI single to left field in an inning that saw 11 batters step to the plate against reliever Brady Dragmire. The Baysox and Senators (8-16) wrap up the 2019 season series with a 12:05 p.m. matinee. The hosts, who already clinched a 12th consecutive series victory, aims for their 11th win of the season against Harrisburg after going 1-6 in the first seven games with the Sens.

BOWIE, Md. – Alex Wells cruised through eight innings to lead the Bowie Baysox to a 4-2 victory over the Harrisburg Senators in front of 1,784 at Prince George's Stadium Monday night. The Australian lefty earned his eighth win of the season and maintained his Eastern League-leading 1.95 ERA by allowing a pair of runs on four hits with four strikeouts. Wells retired 14 of 15 batters between the third and seventh innings, before Cristian Alvarado tossed a scoreless ninth for his third save of the season. The Baysox (19-5) opened the scoring two batters into the game en route to a 2-0 lead. After a Mason McCoy leadoff triple, Cedric Mullins lined a single to center field for his third RBI since joining the club on Thursday. A wild pitch and a walk put runners on the corners for Carlos Perez, who drove in his 30th run of the year on a single to left field off starter Jacob Condra-Bogan in his first start of the season. Harrisburg (8-15) used a wild pitch to score their first run of the game in the top of the fifth inning, but the hosts immediately answered with a run in the bottom half. Mullins singled and stole the team's third base of the night. During that at-bat, Ryan McKenna reclaimed the team lead in RBI, grounding a double down the left field line for his 41st run batted in of 2019. The insurance continued in the sixth inning.

  7. CORCINO AND WALKS CRUSH KEYS SALEM TAKES SERIES WITH COMMANDING OFFENSIVE OUTBURST FREDERICK, MD – A big day from Edgar Corcino downed the Frederick Keys (8-18, 37-58) in a 12-7 thrashing for Salem Red Sox (17-8, 42-50) on Monday afternoon at Nyemo Field. Corcino went 4-for-5 with two home runs and six RBIs while Garrent Benge added three RBIs as well. Keys pitching did not help their cause, walking 11 total batters of which seven scored. The loss gave the Red Sox a series victory while the Keys finish a six-game homestand going 3-3. Corcino hit his first home run in the second inning off of Cameron Bishop, but Bishop seemed unphased. The southpaw struck out four batters in the opening two innings and picked up a strikeout in the third as well before things fell apart. Bishop loaded the bases after giving up a base hit and a pair of walks and the Red Sox took advantage of it. Pedro Castellanos hit a sharp single to score a run, and Garrett Benge punched a soft single into left that brought in two runs to make it 4-0. Corino followed with an RBI single and Bishop walked the final batter he faced before he was pulled. Bishop (0-8) was charged with five runs on five hits after striking out five and walking three in 2.2 innings. It is his eighth straight loss of the season. The Keys struck for a run in the bottom of the third after Zach Jarrett singled home a run, but Victor Acosta picked up an RBI base hit in the fourth to make it 6-1 Red Sox. Corcino slugged a two-run shot in the fifth inning against Zach Matson and Benge lined an RBI double to right field in the sixth to push the led to 9-2. The Keys offense had a promising start to the bottom of the sixth. Kirvin Moesquit doubled to lead off the inning followed by a Jarrett single to put runners at the corners forJomar Reyes. Reyes delivered with a line-drive base hit to that scored Moesquit to make it 9-3. Enmanuel De Jesus buckled down after that. He struck out the next two batters he faced and after allowing a two-out walk to load the bases, induced a fly-ball to end the threat. De Jesus (6-6) picked up the win after allowing the two runs on six hits while striking out six over six innings. Tyler Joyner struggled out of the bullpen in the eighth inning. He loaded the bases after allowing a double and two walks before Corcino picked up a pair of RBIs. Tim Naughton came in relief after Joyner threw over 30 pitches in the inning, and Naughton allowed an RBI single that made it 12-2 Red Sox. The Keys offense found some life in the bottom of the inning against Dominic LoBrutto. Consecutive doubles from Reyes, Ryan Ripken, and Trevor Craport brought home three runs while Sean Miller got a fourth run home on a groundball to third. The Keys tallied one more in the ninth on Ripken’s RBI single. The Keys will rest on a scheduled off day before hitting the road on Wednesday, June 17.

Frederick got on the board in the third inning against Salem right-hander Thaddeus Ward. Sean Miller lined a ball off Ward’s pitching hand, while Jean Carrillo walked to put men at first and second. Ward (1-1) started an at-bat against Robbie Thorburn, but after falling behind 2-0, exited for Joan Martinez.

AKRON, Ohio -- Zac Lowther cruised to his 10th win of the season, dominating the Akron RubberDucks en route to a 4-2 win at Canal Park in front of 5,201 Sunday afternoon. The lefty helped the Baysox earn their 11th consecutive series win by striking out eight batters and allowing one hit over 6 2/3 innings. The Ohio native allowed one earned run in the two-run seventh inning and retired 19 of the first 22 batters en route to 6 2/3 hitless frames. The Baysox (18-5) got the bats going with a run in the second inning. Yusniel Diaz, who finished with a three-hit day, doubled to lead off the frame. A walk and a single loaded the bases with one out for T.J. Nichting, who lifted a sacrifice fly to left field. Another Diaz double kicked off a fourth inning that saw Bowie extend their lead to 3-0. With one out, another sacrifice fly—this one from Martin Cervenka—plated Diaz for the second time. A throwing error from Akron starter Jake Paulson put a runner in scoring position for Nichting, who lined a single to left field for his second RBI in as many at-bats. The Baysox No. 4 hitter took a turn at driving in a run in the seventh inning. Cedric Mullins singled and stole second base for Diaz, who lined the two-out first pitch from Paulson to the wall in left-center field for his third double of the contest and his 40th RBI of the season. With the season series against Akron in the rearview, the Baysox look to continue their hot stretch Monday night with a three-game series against the Harrisburg Senators, Double-A Affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
