Game 7 Recap

April 12, 2012

Overall Record – 3-4
Quick Hit: 
Craig Westcott got the start for the Flying Squirrels and worked behind from the start. Bowie feasted on the pitches they could handle and Bobby Bundy held Richmond in check for six innings.

Craig Westcott go the start in the rubber game of the series and worked from behind most of the game. Westcott had trouble locating his pitches early and was forced to throw his fastball often in the zone to try to get back into the count. And when those pitches came in the zone, the Bay Sox feasted. Westcott would go 5.1 innings allowing six runs on thirteen hits and walking one. Edwin Quirarte would come in for 1.2 innings of relief and, like normal, would give up runs. This time Edwin would allow two runs on three hits and striking out one. Ari Ronick would be the last one out of the bullpen and would get roughed up for three runs on two hits (one being a homerun) in one inning of work.

Offensively, the Flying Squirrels were held in check by a very good Bobby Bundy. The last time Bundy faced the Squirrels he allowed eight runs in three innings. This time, he was on. In six innings he would give up only two hits, walk two, and collect two strikeouts. Eddie Gamboa would come on in relief and would work an easy seventh inning, but would run into trouble in the eighth, . In his two innings of work Gamboa would allow four runs (only one would be earned)  on five hits, two walks, and one strikeout. Robert Hinton would run into trouble as well in his only inning of work. Hinton also would not get any help from his defense and only one of his two runs allowed would be earned. He would walk one and pickup two strikeouts along the way.

Offensively, Daniel Mayora and Chris Dominguez both picked up two hits for the Flying Squirrels. Bowie would have six players collect multiple hits. They were all led by Robbie Widlansky who went 4-5, one of those hits being a homerun and driving in four runs. Manny Machado was the only Bowie batter to not collect a hit, but he did walk twice and score a run.

Notes:
– Today snapped a five-game streak in which the Flying Squirrels would score first.
– Dominguez picked up another outfield assist, getting Widlansky at third base.
– Tommy Joseph is expected to start behind the plate Thursday night in the Flying Squirrels home opener.
