Baysox win, 6-5, move over .500 for first time


BOWIE -- T. R. Lewis' one-out single scored Jarvis Brown with the winning run as the Bowie Baysox moved above .500 for the first time this season with a 6-5 victory over the Binghamton Mets in the first game of a doubleheader last night.

Bowie (47-46) set up the run against Brent Knackert on a walk to Brown and Jim Wawruck's single through the middle.

It was the 19th win in 24 games for the Baysox, who lead the Eastern League's Southern Division.

The victory went to left-handed reliever Bo Magee (1-0), who has not allowed a run in three Baysox appearances. He retired all four batters he faced after replacing Garrett Stephenson, the victim of some poor defense.

Binghamton (47-45) knocked out Stephenson with a two-run, sixth-inning rally capped by Tripp Keister's run-scoring double.

But the Baysox tied on consecutive one-out homers against Knackert by Scott McClain and Billy Owens, the latter tying Owens with B. J. Waszgis for the team lead with nine.

McClain knocked in two other runs with a first-inning single and Brown homered off the scoreboard in the second for Bowie's third run.
