DeanKremer4 1BOWIE – As the starting first baseman, Bowie Baysox star Aderlin Rodriguez has caught routine groundouts more than 1,000 times a season. It is one of the simplest ways to getting the opposing hitter out, and Rodriguez said he usually makes those plays with ease.

However, with two runners on base in the fourth inning, an underthrown ball out of reach from Rodriguez, causing him to stretch before slipping off the base. Rodriguez tried to recover and throw the ball back into play, but the damage was done.

“It was a low throw, and when I went to catch, I was thinking ahead to catch the runner rounding third base,” Rodriguez said. “I tried throwing the ball before holding on to it, and that’s went I slipped.”

The low throw and catching error drove in the first of seven unanswered runs for the visiting New Hampshire Fisher Cats. On top of multiple defensive errors, the Baysox failed to capitalize early, leaving runners stranded on base all game long. The visitors capitalized on the mistakes to defeat Bowie 7-2 in front of 4,013 fans in Prince George’s Stadium on Aug. 9.
