Smith, 'pen lift Baysox past Thunder


Hut Smith allowed four hits and a run in seven innings in pitching the Bowie Baysox to a 3-1 win over the visiting Trenton Thunder yesterday in a Double-A Eastern League game.

The right-hander walked two and struck out five in improving his record to 2-0. Joel Bennett and Matt Snyder each threw an inning of scoreless relief. Snyder kept Trenton from scoring after the bases were loaded in the ninth inning for his 14th save.

The Baysox got all their runs in the first. Jesse Garcia led off with a single to center and scored on David Lamb's triple. Lamb came across on a double to right-center by Jim Foster, and Foster later scored on Melvin Rosario's sacrifice fly.

Shorebirds 7, Suns 1: Visiting Delmarva -- led by Calvin Pickering and Ryan Minor -- extended its record against Hagerstown to 12-3 overall with the easy win in Single-A South Atlantic League action.

The Shorebirds (6-3) scored three in the first and third innings, with Pickering hitting a two-run homer and Minor a bases-empty shot, his sixth in eight games.
