Eury Perez, Jim Negrych and Jesus Valdez each singled, but the lone run came in the third without a base hit or an RBI.

Zech Zinicola let in the tying run in the 8th and gave up the winning run in the 8th for the blown-save-loss, allowing three hits and two walks while recording three outs. Justin Bloxom was a home run short of the cycle and drove in three of the four Senator runs. The fourth came in on Brian Goodwin’s 5th home run for Harrisburg, 14th overall.
