Game 54 Preview - Harrisburg @ Bowie

Harrisburg Senators (19-34) @ Bowie Baysox (27-26)
7:05 ET, Prince George's Stadium
Radio: WRGW

  • RHP Collin Balester (2-2, 2.98 ERA) v. RHP Radhames Liz (3-2, 4.06)
  • Both team won last night, but the Senators enter the game at the bottom of the Eastern League's Southern Division standings. They are currently 11.5 back of the Division leading Akron Aeros, while the Baysox sit in 3rd place 3.5 out. This is the first meeting of the two teams this year.
  • Liz is coming off of his worst start of the season, giving up 4 runs on 4 hits in a 3-inning no decision. He is, however, leading the Baysox in strikeouts this season with 58 in 10 starts.
  • The Baysox made a couple of key transactions today, transferring closer James Hoey to Class AAA Norfolk and sending IF Travis Brown to High-A Frederick. Hoey had been phenomenal this year converting all 14 of his save opportunities, including a 3-strikeout performance last night against the Reading Phillies.
