BINGHAMTON, NY - Champ Stuart's two home run effort was not enough as the Binghamton Rumble Ponies dropped the series decider, 5-4, to the Bowie Baysox Thursday night at NYSEG Stadium.

The Rumble Ponies scored all of their runs with two outs for the second straight night. 

After tossing six strong frames, Corey Oswalt gave way for Cory Taylor in the seventh inning, leading 2-1. Adam Brett Walker greeted Taylor with a game-tying solo home run, his fourth in just nine games with Bowie. After allowing an Audry Perez single and a Stevie Wilkerson walk, Erick Salcedo knocked into a fielder's choice for the first out. That set up Cedric Mullins with two men aboard, and the leadoff hitter smashed a long ball over the right field fence to propel the Baysox in front, 5-2.
