Elmira beats up Blue Ox

ELMIRA, N.Y. – The Bangor Blue Ox dropped to four games behind idle Adirondack with a 5-1 loss Thursday night to Elmira in Northeast League action.

Tito Landrum’s two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning locked up the game for Elmira.

Elmira had solid pitching that the Blue Ox simply couldn’t overcome. Frank Gonzales picked up the win by pitching five shutout innings, scattering four hits and striking out five. The bullpen added four innings of one-run ball.

Pete Hartmann pitched well despite taking the loss. He pitched a complete game, allowing eight hits and striking out six.

Errors late in the game allowed Elmira to score two unearned runs, one in the seventh and another in the eighth.

Steve Hine added three singles and Gabe Duross poked a sole home run in the top of the 9th to account for their only run.
