Officially, the wind was blowing out at 10mph to CF… but there were gusts from 15 whiffs by Akron batters in a 2-1 loss to Harrisburg. That creaking you hear might just be the Reynaldo Lopez bandwagon taking on some passengers as the 22-y.o. Dominican struck out a career-high of 12 without a single walk over five innings. He gave up one run on five hits. The decision went to Koda Glover, who tossed two scoreless innings and fanned two while allowing one hit and one walk. Wilmer Difo led off the 9th with the fourth Sens hit and was sacrificed over and in by Issac Ballou and Neftali Soto, respectively. Soto scored the first run after leading off the 2nd with a triple and trotting home on a grounder to short.

Justin Thomas finished the game with two scoreless innings. Offensively, the P-Nats were held to just three hits and two walks with Matt Reistetter and Dale Carey both reaching base twice with a single and a walk and Andrew Stevenson breaking up the shutout with an RBI double in the 3rd.
