Mets blast Schullstrom, Baysox, 10-2

August 03, 1993|By Jamison Hensley | Jamison Hensley,Staff Writer

The horrible streak for Erik Schullstrom did not end with July.

The Bowie right-hander had lost in his final four starts in July. Schullstrom had a 7.94 ERA and allowed 33 hits in his last 22 2/3 innings of the month.

Now add last night's 10-2 Bowie Baysox loss to the Binghamton Mets in the rubber game of the three-game series before 1,368 at Memorial Stadium. The game was marred by five Baysox errors, all by infielders, which led to five unearned runs.

Shortstop Tim Holland and second baseman Edgar Alfonzo had two errors apiece. Schullstrom (5-10) gave up seven runs, four of them earned, in 4 2/3 innings.

After the loss, manager Don Buford had a 15-minute, closed-doors meeting with the team.

"We just had a short team meeting. That's it," Buford said. "I talked over a few things with the guys."

After walking Joe Delli Carri in the fifth inning, Schullstrom stepped off the front of the mound and began yelling at home plate umpire Brian Gilbert, who immediately ejected Schullstrom from the game.

Schullstrom, who has not won since July 6, was unsettled throughout as he threw two wild pitches and allowed eight hits and four walks for his third straight loss to Binghamton. The Mets had a runner in scoring position for four of Schullstrom's nearly five innings of work.

The Baysox won their season series against the Mets, 12-8.

Binghamton starter Steve Long (10-6) went eight innings, surrendering two early runs and six hits.

NOTES: 1B Brent Miller was placed on the disabled list last night after being out of action since July 23 with an infected hand. He is leading the Baysox with 48 RBI. IF Dan Ramirez was called up from Frederick to take Miller's roster spot. . . . Brian DuBois was named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week. The left-hander was 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA in the final week of July.
