Notes from Bowie's 7-6 loss to Richmond on Saturday

Steve Johnson failed to make it through the 4th inning, allowing five runs on five hits, including a three-run home run in the first.  He also failed to set a new minor league record for walks in a game, but Komminsk thwarted his effort and replaced him with Tanaka after only six walks in 3 1/3 innings.  Johnson was lucky to only allow five runs, as he walked the bases loaded in the 2nd and escaped with no damage, and an amazing diving catch by Tucker prevented a big inning in the 3rd.

The Baysox offense was non-existent until the 5th inning, when Henson started a rally with a single, only the Baysox's second hit of the game. After Joseph and Miclat reached base, Craig Wescott, the Flying Squirrels' starter loaded walked in a run, and then followed that with allowing a single to  Avery, which scored an additional two runs.  Wescott was replaced by Daryl Maday, who followed his lead by giving up a single to Rojas and walking in another run.  Luckily for Maday, the line drive Guzman hit was right to their second baseman, allowing the Flying Squirrels to turn a double play and keep the score at 6-4. 

Jim Johnson (yes, that one) came in to pitch the 6th and was solid expect for a home run.  In the bottom of the 6th, Joseph led off with a single.  Miclat followed with a ground ball to their shortstop, but a good slide from Joseph prevented the Flying Squirrels from turning a double play.  This proved to be especially advantageous, as Tucker and Avery followed with doubles, making the score 7-6.  Avery was the clear star of the day for the Baysox, with three hits - two singles and a double - and four of their six RBIs.

The rest of the game was dominated by the relievers, and no more runs were scored by either team.
