Satre lifts Baysox over Mets, 6-4


BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Sometimes, Jason Satre has a hard time concentrating when his team gets the lead.

Give him some room to work with, and Satre's mind starts to wander.

But Wednesday against the Binghamton Mets, Satre was focused. He gave up one hit over six innings, helping the Bowie Baysox to a 6-4 Eastern League victory at Binghamton Municipal Stadium before 2,706.

"I was placing my slider a little bit," Satre said. "Hitting the spots makes it a lot easier."

The Baysox helped Satre from the start. Brad Tyler tripled to lead off. Then with one out, Jeffrey Hammonds singled to score Tyler.

In the third, Jim Wawruck homered, and Tyler hit a bases-empty homer in the fifth to make it 3-0.

Satre retired the first five Mets before he allowed a walk. He then got the next 11 in a row, four on strikeouts.

"He was throwing a real good game," Mets third baseman Butch Huskey said. "It makes it tough on the hitters when the pitcher's throwing all three pitches for strikes."

In the sixth, Frank Davis broke up the no-hit bid with a single to right for the Mets.

Satre, reaching his 100-pitch limit, left the game after that inning.

* Mike Flanagan will throw out the first ball at the Baysox's home opener tomorrow night at Memorial Stadium against the London Tigers at 7:05 p.m.

Flanagan, who threw the last pitch by an Oriole at Memorial Stadium in 1991, will be joined at the game by ex-Orioles Scott McGregor, Tippy Martinez, Tim Nordbrook, Dick Hall, Kevin Hickey and Willy Miranda.

* Hickey has rejoined the Baysox as director of community relations after he failed to hook on with the Houston Astros in spring training. He was released during the final cut by the Astros.
