Bowie, Md. - The Baysox (4-4) led the Akron Aeros (2-5) from start to finish in a 5-1 win Thursday evening in the home opener in Bowie for the team's third straight win.
Baysox starter Kevin Gausman cruised in his second start of the season, pitching six innings and allowing one run on two hits while striking out five in the win.
"In Harrisburg, I think I was around the zone too much and tonight I just tried to focus on hitting my spots early in the count and then expanding the zone later," Gausman said.

As we all know by now, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has a torrid – as well as historic – start to the 2013 season.
Over the past few seasons, he has become not only a star, but an endearing presence to the Orioles fan base not only because of his freakish power and six-foot-three physique, but his ever-improving ability at the plate.

The Orioles were threatening against the Yankees in the top of the eighth inning Friday, but some slick fielding and poor running put an end to that.

On Friday night, the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2, and while Adam Jones' three-run error is going to get all of the headlines, the Yankees had a pretty unique play of their own on the defensive side of the field: they turned a triple play in the top of the eighth when the Orioles had a prime opportunity to rally back.
With men on first and second, Manny...
