The Richmond Flying Squirrels’ pennant hangover continues.
Since clinching the franchise’s first playoff spot since 2014, Richmond hasn’t won in four tries.
On Friday night, they lost 4-2 to the Bowie Baysox on the road.
The Squirrels picked up a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning, but Bowie answered back with two runs in the bottom of the sixth.
Richmond started the game with a leadoff home run from Michael Gigliotti, his seventh of the season.
For the Squirrels, Kai-Wei Teng (4-6) took the loss despite a generally solid outing. He allowed three runs and struck out seven in 5ª innings of work.
Bowie reliever Adam Stauffer (2-1) claimed the victory for the Baysox with a 3-inning performance from the bullpen where he struck out five and did not allow a run. Shelton Perkins slammed the door shut for his third save of the season.
