Game Notes

  • Pitching matchup – Akron: LHP Shawn Morimando (6-0, 1.96) vs. Harrisburg: RHP Austen Williams (0-4, 8.49)
  • Following a 95-minute rain delay Saturday night, the Senators and RubberDucks played 12 innings deep into the chilly evening with Akron taking the third game of the series, 4-3.
  • All four of the RubberDucks’ runs were unearned to Senators’ pitching as Harrisburg committed three errors, including a costly dropped popup in shallow left-center field that allowed the go-ahead run to score in the 12th.
  • Lucas Giolito was solid again for the Senators, throwing 5.2 innings without allowing an earned run. The Nationals’ No. 1 prospect walked a season-high five batters, but worked out of trouble nicely throughout the evening.
