Baysox 8, Aeros 2
Shoddy defense behind starting pitcher Paolo Espino got the Aeros in a hole early in Tuesday’s road loss to Bowie.
The Baysox (52-50) scored three runs in the first inning following errors by Francisco Lindor and Cedric Hunter.
Another error by Matt Lawson allowed a run to score in the third before Espino unraveled and allowed four more runs in the next two innings.
His day was finished after 4⅓, allowing eight runs (four earned) on 10 hits and two walks with two strikeouts.
He fell to 2-4 with the loss.
Akron (51-52) mustered only four singles. Carlos Moncrief led the way with two.
Both Aeros runs came in the fourth inning on a single by Lawson and a sacrifice fly by Kyle Bellows.
Lindor reached twice, both on walks.
Starter Eduardo Rodriguez picked up his first win for Bowie, improving to 1-2.
