While workers attempt to build a new exterior for Tullio Arena, Erie SeaWolves catcher John Murrian did what he could to tear it down Friday night.
Murrian dented a just-installed insulation panel high atop the arena, courtesy of his two-run home run off Bowie Baysox reliever Pedro Viola. His eighth-inning blast capped a four-run rally for the SeaWolves, who overcame an early two-run deficit for a 6-2 victory at Jerry Uht Park.
Erie moved to 3-4 with its first home win of 2012, while the Baysox dropped to 3-6.

Murrian’s homer was the game’s second by an Erie batter.
Jordan Lennerton got the hosts on the scoreboard in the fifth with a solo homer, one that just cleared the fence and a leaping attempt by Bowie center fielder L.J. Hoes. Lennerton also drove in a run just ahead of Murrian’s homer in the eighth.
Rawley Bishop added two hits, and his eighth-inning sacrifice fly gave the SeaWolves the lead for good. Bishop accomplished that in his first professional start as an outfielder.
