The 141st and final game of Double-A Bowie's season this afternoon certainly carries some meaning.
With the Baysox's 10-1 victory over Erie yesterday, coupled by Richmond's 1-0 loss in 11 innings to Altoona, Bowie enters today a half game behind second-place Richmond for a spot in the Eastern League playoffs.
The Baysox, who play their regular-season finale against Erie this afternoon at 2:05 at Prince George's Stadium, need a victory and another Richmond loss to Altoona to make the playoffs. Richmond and Altoona play at noon today.
Right-hander Tim Bascom (8-4, 3.21) will start for the Baysox, opposing Erie southpaw Jay Voss (9-6, 3.67).
Chris Davis (right shoulder strain) is also expected to play his second rehab game for Bowie, starting at third base.
