Aeros 4, Baysox 3
Key situation: Carlos Moncrief smashed a game-winning single to center field in the bottom of the ninth inning to score the speedy Jose Ramirez and hand the Aeros a victory. The big hit was his third of the night as the right fielder went 3-for-5.
Quick hits: Indians rehabbing right-handed pitcher Blake Wood (Tommy John elbow surgery) started for the Aeros but didn’t make it out of the first inning, allowing a run on a double and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. Originally scheduled starter and right-hander Paolo Espino relieved Wood and limited the Baysox to two runs on five hits, also striking out eight. Right-hander Bryce Stowell earned the win to improve to 2-0, holding Bowie to one hit over two scoreless innings.
Next game: Aeros right-hander Brett Brach (1-2, 3.12 ERA) and Baysox right-hander Kevin Gausman (1-3, 3.77 ERA) are scheduled to pitch today at 2:05 p.m. at Canal Park.
