BOWIE -- The New Haven Ravens scored four unearned runs and rode a big early advantage to a 7-6 Eastern League victory over Bowie last night at Prince George's County Stadium.
It was the third straight one-run defeat for the Baysox, who fell back to the .500 mark (49-49) before a crowd of 6,619.
New Haven (Colorado Rockies) has won six of its last seven and presses onward in an attempt to overtake first-place Portland in the Northern Division.
The Ravens pounded loser Matt Jarvis, Bowie's All-Star Game representative, for seven hits in 3 1/3 innings and capitalized on a throwing error by T. R. Lewis to take a 4-0 lead in the top of the fourth.
Three tainted runs came against Scott Conner in the sixth, partially because of Conner's own miscue.
The Baysox battled back primarily on the hitting of Scott McClain (three hits, three RBIs) and Billy Owens (3-for-4, two runs). McClain has knocked in 22 runs in the last 14 games.
New Haven starter Joel Moore (10-6) went five innings and allowed two runs to get the victory. Jarvis (8-7) took the loss.
