B-Mets Stranded at Bay in Bowie, 5-0BOWIE, MD – The Binghamton Mets left 10 runners on base in a 5-0 loss to the Bowie Baysox on Saturday night at Prince George’s Stadium. The B-Mets went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position in their eighth shutout loss of the season.
Glynn Davis opened the scoring for the Baysox by belting a two-run homer off B-Mets spot-starter Logan Taylor in the second inning. Bowie stretched their lead with a three-spot in the fifth against B-Met relievers Alberto Baldonado and Luis Mate.
The five-run cushion proved to be plenty for Bowie starter David Hess (5-12). The righty snapped a six-game winless slump with the victory. Hess scattered six hits and stranded eight runners over six scoreless innings to earn his second win since June 7.
Binghamton had several chances against Hess, but failed to break through with a timely hit. Maikis De La Cruz struck out to leave the bases loaded in the second and fanned again in the fourth to leave two more aboard.
Major League rehabber Brian Duensing tossed two scoreless innings before Bobby Bundy fired a perfect ninth.
Taylor (4-2) walked four and surrendered two runs on four hits in the loss, his first defeat as a starter this season.
