He lost for the fifth time with five runs allowed on six hits and no walks while fanning four over four and 2/3rds innings. Harrisburg rallied for three late but couldn’t push across the equalizer, leaving the tying runner on at third in the 8th, and at second in the 9th. Rafael Bautista walked, singled, homered, scored a run, stole a base, threw out a runner at second
