Baysox use 19 hits to end Norwich win streak, 16-1


BOWIE -- The Bowie Baysox were in danger of falling 14 games below .500 for the first time this season, but they quickly perished the thought last night.

They scored 10 runs in the first three innings and went on to a season-high runs total in a 16-1 rout of the Norwich Navigators at Prince George's County Stadium.

Bowie (29-41) also had a season-best 19 hits with Jim Wawruck singling five times.

Norwich, whose six-game winning streak ended, pitched in by walking eight Baysox batters, hitting two with pitches and committing two errors.

Former major-leaguer Kim Batiste knocked in four runs to give him 14 RBIs in the past four games. He also has a 14-game hitting streak, longest by a Baysox player this season.

Billy Owens drove in five runs in support of Garrett Stephenson (3-6), who cruised to the first nine-inning complete game by a Baysox pitcher this year. The victory was his first since May 12.
