For the second straight outing, Aeros starting pitcher T.J. House struck out nine batters and the Aeros bats supported him in a 7-2 win at home.
House lasted 5.2 innings, allowing two earned runs and finished with a 9:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Manager Edwin Rodriguez liked how House used his off-speed pitches against a potent, lefty-heavy Baysox lineup.
The Aeros were able to produce off of one of the top prospects in Baltimore's system, starting pitcher Kevin Gausman. Jose Ramirez tripled home a run in the bottom of the first and then score on Jesus Aguilar's groundout.
Ramirez also had two nifty plays in the field. In the top of the fourth, Ramirez reached a ball hit behind the bag at second and was able to get the throw there in time, though Aguilar wasn't ready at first base. Still, Ramirez saved a run just by keeping it in the infield. Later, Ramirez scooped up a ball that careened off of the glove of reliever Brett Brach and beat the runner to the bag.
The Aeros next start a three-game series against Trenton at home.
