BINGHAMTON, NY - The Bowie Baysox stole the middle game from the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, 13-7, Wednesday night at NYSEG Stadium. Bowie used a seven-run eighth inning for the come-from-behind victory, while sending the Rumble Ponies to their first loss when leading after five innings. The teams combined for 29 hits in the three hour and seventeen minute affair game.
Needing just 82 pitches to complete seven innings, P.J. Conlon returned to the mound for the top of the eighth inning with a 6-3 lead. The lefty was yanked after allowing back-to-back hits to Cedric Mullins and Adrian Marin to begin the frame. Luis Rojas summoned Cory Burns from the bullpen to douse the impending flame. Instead, the first seven batters Burns faced reached base successfully. Bowie sent 11 men to the plate, scoring seven runs on seven hits to take a 10-6 advantage after the top half of the eighth.
