September 15, 2022 – Eastern League (EL)Akron RubberDucks News Release

Summary

The Akron RubberDucks donned their Los Perros Calientes de Akron identity on Thursday night as the Bowie Baysox struck for seven between the third and fourth innings to down Los Perros Calientes 10-1 at Canal Park.


Turning Point

After Akron trimmed the lead down to 2-1 in the bottom of the third, Bowie looked to add on in a big way in the fourth. Maverick Handley singled home Andrew Daschbach to get the scoring going before Coby Mayo launched a grand slam to make it 7-1 Baysox.

Mound Presence

Doug Nikhazy got the start for Akron and looked sharp early retiring six of the first eight to greet him. The lefty ran into trouble in the third and fourth allowing three runs before leaving with two on and one out in the fourth. Eli Lingos followed and allowed a grand slam in the fourth, but then quickly settled in. Lingos finished his outing tossing four and third innings allowing four runs while striking out six. Cade Smith followed with an inning and two-thirds allowing one run while punching out four.

Duck Tales

Los Perros Calientes answered the Baysox’s two early runs in the bottom of the third when Julian Escobedo blasted a solo home run off the slide in right to make it 2-1 Bowie.
