J.D. Martin allowed one hit over eight innings, striking out 10 Monday night, but the Bowie Baysox scored seven unearned runs in the ninth inning to defeat the Akron Aeros, 7-3.

Martin allowed only a third-inning double to Bowie shortstop Brandon Fahey and did not walk a batter.

First baseman Michael Aubrey had two of Akron's five hits, including his first homer. Third baseman Pat Osborn went 2-for-4 and right-fielder Jon Van Every 1-for-3 with an RBI for Akron (2-3).

Lefty Mariano Gomez replaced Martin to start the ninth. His throwing error and a missed groundball by Aeros shortstop Ivan Ochoa helped fuel the Bowie comeback.

Chris Cooper replaced Gomez and gave up three straight singles and two bases-loaded walks before getting the final two outs.

AT CLASS A LAKE COUNTY: The Captains rallied to win their home opener 2-1 over the Delmarva Shorebirds.

Lake County lefty Aaron Laffey allowed an unearned run in the first inning.

Delmarva starter Luis Rivera had a no-hitter through five. Argenis Reyes opened the sixth with a triple and scored on a one-out single by Mike Butia -- finishing Rivera.

In the bottom of the ninth, Juan Valdes walked and scored on Butia's bloop single to right.

Lefty Tony Sipp got the win, allowing only one hit in four innings of relief as Lake County improved to 4-1.

AT CLASS AAA BUFFALO: Right-hander Jeremy Guthrie gave up five runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in the Bisons' 9-0 loss to Syracuse.

Denny Stark yielded seven hits and four runs, though only two were earned, in two innings and Fernando Cabrera pitched a scoreless ninth for the Bisons (2-3).

Mike Kinkade (2-for-4) had two of Buffalo's four hits. Jake Gautreau went 1-for-3 and Ernie Young 1-for-2.

AT CLASS A KINSTON: Left-fielder Nathan Panther went 3-for-6 with his first homer, while Brad Snyder and Ryan Goleski also homered for the K-Tribe in a 9-4 loss to Wilmington in 12 innings.

Goleski's second homer of the season in the ninth inning tied the score, 4-4.

Juan Lara pitched 3 1/3 perfect innings of relief, striking out five for Kinston (3-1) before Jim Ed Warden walked four and gave up three doubles in Wilmington's five-run 12th.
