Over this past week, the Bowie Baysox played some very good baseball at home from Prince Geroge’s Stadium. They scored a total of 38 runs in these six games and won the first four in a row.
This was a collective offensive effort this week, as nearly every name in the lineup brought offensive production.
In the first game, the Baysox absolutely annihilated the RubberDucks pitching staff from inning one. They scored eight runs in the first and four in the second, all with two outs.
Hudson Haskin, the O’s No. 16 prospect, totaled six RBIs in his first game back from injury, including a grand slam. He was one of four players that homered in that game.
The Orioles’ No. 28 prospect Adam Hall collected three RBIs, and No. 6 prospect Jordan Westburg went 2-for-3 with three walks and two doubles in the first inning alone.
Hall had a great series, hitting safely in all four games he played in. He ended up going 7-for-18 in total and now sits at a .340 average and .811 OPS on the year.
O’s No. 3 prospect Gunnar Henderson delivered a quite improbable home run in the Bowie’s game five loss. After 11 consecutive strikeouts by RubberDucks starter Daniel Espino, Henderson took him deep. This was Henderson’s second long ball on the year.
Their was plenty of quality pitching for the Baysox as well.
Zach Peek had two good starts for Bowie. The first was in game one, when he entered the second inning with a 8-1 lead. In total, Peek pitched eight innings, gave up seven hits and allowed just three runs. He also struck out nine between the two starts.
Garrett Stallings and Ryan Watson delivered a beautiful shutout in game two. Stallings started and went five scoreless innings with just one hit allowed. Watson followed that with four scoreless of his own, giving up no hits and striking out three.
O’s No. 17 prospect Drew Rom threw a good one-run start in four innings in his lone outing. Nolan Hoffman also shined with four scoreless innings between two outings through this series.
The next Baysox action will be on the road against the Richmond Flying Squirrels starting Tuesday at 11:05 a.m. EST.
