The New Haven Ravens had hit 79 home runs this season, fewest in the Class AA Eastern League entering last night's game at Bowie.

However, New Haven homered twice against the Baysox, the second a three-run shot from Jake Weber in the sixth inning that helped the Ravens to a 5-4 win before 6,237 at Prince George's Stadium.

The loss dropped Bowie one game behind Harrisburg in the battle for the Southern Division's final playoff spot.

While New Haven (55-66) has not hit many home runs this season, the Baysox (64-57) have surrendered plenty. They led the Eastern League with 129 homers allowed entering last night's game.

Bowie's loss spoiled a solid five-inning effort from Brian Falkenborg, making his first start since going on the disabled list June 7 with a sore elbow. Falkenborg allowed one run on two hits.

"Everything felt really good," Falkenborg said. "I was really happy with the way I threw tonight."

He threw only 65 pitches while battling 6-foot-10 New Haven starter Ryan Anderson (6-12).

Brendan Kingman gave the Ravens a 1-0 lead with a homer in the first. Rick Short tied the score with an RBI single in the bottom half of the inning, and Wady Almonte gave Bowie a 3-1 lead with a two-run double in the fifth.

Bowie reliever Mario Iglesias (1-2) struggled upon entering in the sixth, allowing a single to Kingman and a walk to Jayson Bass. After Juan Thomas struck out, Weber sent the next pitch over the right field fence for a 4-3 lead.
