Brady House led off the 8th with a triple to break up the no-hitter and perhaps even tie the game at 1-1. But Harrisburg couldn’t get the ball out of the infield with House called out above (pictured above) on the second of two groundouts as the Senators lost again, 1-0 to the Rumble Ponies. Mitchell Parker took the loss on an unearned run let in on two hits and four walks. He struck out five. Robert Hassell ended the perfect game with a one-out walk in the 4th and was the first of two runners left on as Terone Harris reached on the play at the plate.
