Bowie Baysox pitcher Devin Jones made his first start after coming off the disabled list on July 22, but he did not fare well against the Akron Aeros as the Baysox fell 4-2.
Jones pitched four innings, giving up six hits and two runs. He walked three batters and earned a 5.88 ERA.
Bowie took an early lead when Kyle Hudson hit a lead-off single and stole second base. Hudson scored after outfielder Trayvon Robinson smacked a two-base hit to left field, 1-0.
Akron responded in the following inning with a Carlos Moncreif double. Jones walked Tyler Holt, and then Jake Lowery drove in Moncrief with a single to tie the game. Jesus Aguilar hit a double to center field to plate Francisco Lindor, 2-1.
Bowie came back in the fourth to tie the game. Niuman Romero hit a lead-off single to left field and moved to second base after Caleb Joseph hit an infield single. Romero moved to third base on a groundout by Christian Walker, and Seth Loman smashed a sacrifice fly to drive Romero home, 2-2.
“Caleb Joseph really played a nice ballgame back there today,” Baysox Manager Gary Kendall said. “He blocked, he threw well — it was the best I have seen him in his time as a pro. He threw the baseball to second base accurately and he did a really nice job.”
Akron took the lead and the game in the ninth inning. Matt Lawson reached first by the way of a fielding error by Brandon Waring to start the Aeros’ rally. Baysox reliever Andy Loomis threw a fat pitch to Lindor, who smacked a two-base hit to plate Lawson. Akron racked up another run when Lindor advanced to third and then scored on a balk by Loomis, 4-2.
