    Having been at the Erie-Bowie game, I can offer the following observations: Connolly looked quite strong and was spinning a one-hitter before he blew up the seventh (both walks, the second hit and first run before the blown save). Sure he hadn’t struck out anybody, but he was getting the Bowie hitters out on grounders and lazy fly balls. The offense looked quite strong, especially Guzman (who can FLY) and Frazier, who has quite a nice power stroke. Wilkin Ramirez also looked good, including some smart baserunning in the 11th, taking second on a throw home and just beating the tag. I must say that the most entertaining part of the game was seeing Bowie’s very own Ben “Crash” Davis start at catcher. Oh how the mighty have fallen…
