Homers power Baysox's sweep

June 18, 1996|By Kent Baker | Kent Baker,SUN STAFF

BOWIE -- Danny Clyburn became the first Bowie player to drive in four runs in a game this season, hitting two home runs to lead the Baysox past the Trenton Thunder, 5-3, yesterday afternoon.

It was the opener of an Eastern League day-night doubleheader that sent the Southern Division-leading Thunder (39-26) against the last-place Baysox (28-39). The game was halted by rain for one hour.

In the nightcap, Keith Gordon of Olney hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning to lead Bowie to a 5-1 win. Calvin Maduro pitched his fourth complete game of the season. He allowed four hits, walked two and struck out four.

The middle of the Bowie batting order did all the damage in the first game against loser Shawn Senior (4-6), who allowed a three-run homer to Clyburn in the third after walking two batters and a bases-empty shot in the seventh.

Tommy Davis went 3-for-3 and broke the club record by hitting in his 17th straight game. David Dellucci, who joined the Baysox on Sunday, hit two doubles to give him five in two games.

Clyburn has six homers against Trenton pitching, which has surrendered the most in the league.
