BOWIE, Md. - The Richmond Flying Squirrels, in conjunction with the Eastern League of Professional Baseball, announced the rosters on Monday for the 2019 Eastern League All-Star Game, which will take place at The Diamond on Wednesday, July 10 at 7:05 p.m.
The Western Division features four members of the 2019 Bowie Baysox: LHP Zac Lowther, LHP Alex Wells, INF Rylan Bannon & INF Mason McCoy.
The 2019 Eastern League Pitcher of the Week from the week of May 14-20, Lowther leads the Baysox in wins (7). An owner of a 7-4 record and a 1.95 ERA through his first 13 career Double-A starts, the lefty had a 21 2/3-inning scoreless streak spanning from May 7 to May 26 (3+ starts).
Right after Lowther in the starting rotation is Wells, who owns an equally impressive 1.90 ERA. Through 11 starts in his first Double-A season, the Australian has a 5-1 record, posting three wins in his last four starts. The team leader in earned run average, Wells was named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the week of May 28 to June 3.
A year after landing on the California League All-Star team with Class-A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga, Bannon makes a second straight All-Star game in his first full season within the Orioles organization. Playing in all but two games this season, the second and third baseman owns a .276 average with 17 doubles, one triple, four home runs and 27 RBI.
Fellow infielder McCoy is the team leader in batting average, posting a .324 mark since joing the Baysox from Class-A Advanced Frederick on May 6. With McCoy atop the starting lineup, Bowie has gone 27-16 after starting the year with a 7-23 record.
