RubberDucks 2, Baysox 1

Storylines: Andrew Calica sent the Ducks (10-10) off with a win with a two-out, bases-loaded single to score Joe Sever in the series opener against Bowie (11-8).

Duckbills: Shao-Ching Chiang continues to impress. The right-hander went seven innings of four-hit ball. He gave up a run and struck out seven. He has 14 strikeouts in four starts and hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs. He picked up a no decision, but Chiang’s ERA dropped to 1.61.

Next: Game 2 of the three-game series starts at 2:05 p.m. Saturday at Canal Park. Ducks right-hander Shane Bieber (3-0, 1.04) and Baysox right-hander Michael Kelly (0-1, 4.80) are the scheduled pitchers.
