8-17-11: Bowie Baysox @ Richmond Flying Squirrels
Joe Mahoney was responsible for most of the Baysox offense this night. He had a 3 run triple in the first inning. His signature looks so much better on this card than the one I got back from spring training this year.
I was also able to get the Baysox starter Bobby Bundy to sign my custom. He hasn't fared as well in Double-A as he did in Frederick.
If the game had ended after the first five batters of the game, Bowie would have won 4 to 0. There isn't that much to say about the game after that because Bobby Bundy had a tough night. I was excited to see him pitch and he did show some bright spots but it just wasn't enough. He was staked to a 4-0 lead and the Flying Skunks knocked the ball around the yard on him. The final score ended up 8-5 with Richmond prevailing. An interesting moment during the game was when Bowie's hitting coach Denny Hocking blew a gasket over a controversial home run and was subsequently ejected. I'd never seen him so angry but I never saw him play much with the Twins either!
Overall it was a great night to catch a ballgame even though Bowie didn't win. They are in the playoff hunt so if they make it in, I might try to make it to Bowie to catch a game if my schedule permits.
