Senators limited to four hits in 3-2 loss to Bowie
Sean Coyle gave Bowie an early lead Friday night when he homered in the bottom of the first, and with the Senators lineup struggling to mount much offense, the Baysox topped Harrisburg for a second straight day.
Baysox righty David Hess limited the Senators to one run on two hits and a walk over six innings to earn his first victory of the season in Bowie’s 3-2 win.
Harrisburg designated hitter Netafli Soto broke up Hess’ no-hitter with two outs in the fourth when he launched his first home run of the season. By that point, though, the Senators (4-5) were already facing a 3-0 deficit.
After Coyle took Harrisburg starter Austen Williams deep with one out in the first, the Baysox (6-3) struck again in the third. Cedric Mullins opened the frame with a single, and after Coyle reached on a single, both players moved up a base on a double steal. They both would come around to score.
Williams, who allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings, suffered the loss.
Harrisburg had a chance to tie it up in the sixth when Bowie made a couple of errors. But with Alec Keller on third base and one out with the Senators trailing 3-2, Drew Ward struck out and Soto flied out to right field.
