First baseman Joe Mahoney, who has been on a tear for the Double-A Bowie Baysox, left last night’s game at Portland after the fourth inning and is not in the lineup today for their afternoon game there.
I’m told Mahoney was dealing with some cramping, probably due to the heat.
Mahoney is batting .402-6-18 in 23 Baysox games after going 0 for 3 last night. He has a slugging percentage of .713 and OPS of 1.159.
He has produced 11 multi-hit games in his short time with Bowie, including six games of three hits or more since joining the Baysox on July 9.
He hit .299-9-49 in Frederick until his move to Double-A.
