Montgomery pitches Baysox to 3-1 victory


READING, Pa. -- Steve Montgomery allowed one run and three hits over eight innings as the Bowie Baysox defeated the Reading Phillies, 3-1, last night in a Double-A Eastern League game.

Montgomery (10-5) did not allow a run until the seventh, when a sacrifice fly by Reading's Chris Tremie scored Brian Costello, who opened the inning with a triple, trimmed the Baysox's lead to 2-1.

A home run by Melvin Rosario and a single by David Lamb gave Bowie a 2-0 lead, and Bowie added an insurance run in the ninth on Howie Clark's RBI double.
