The Bowie Baysox had several scoring chances last night but couldn't do much with them, leaving 14 men on base in a 3-1 loss to the Binghamton Mets in a Class AA Eastern League game before 5,844 at Prince George's Stadium.

Neither team scored after Binghamton scored twice in the second to take a 3-1 lead.

The Baysox (27-19) left the bases loaded three times, including in the eighth and ninth innings. They also stranded runners in scoring position in the first, fourth, fifth and seventh.

"We haven't had much timely hitting, but if you could do that every game, you'd never lose," Baysox Manager Joe Ferguson said. "They are finding the holes and we're not."

Bowie starter Brian Falkenborg (3-4) allowed Jorge Toca's RBI single in the first, but Bowie tied it in the bottom half of the inning when Carlos Casimiro drew a bases-loaded walk off starter Matt Ruebel.

The Mets took the lead for good in the second when Sammy Rodriguez got an RBI single and Garrett Neubart added an RBI triple for a 3-1 lead. Binghamton (20-27) had runners on base in five of the last seven innings, but the Baysox turned three double plays.

The Baysox loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth, but Ivanon Coffie hit a soft blooper to shortstop John Tamargo.
