Senators Stymied by Trenton in 7-4 Loss
The Harrisburg Senators four-game winning streak came to an end on Monday night amid a flurry of errors allowing six runs to score in a 7-4 loss to the Trenton Thunder. Harrisburg (34-29) had only six hits in the game while Trenton (38-26) went six-for-twelve with runners in scoring position.
Reynaldo Lopez started and pitched better than his line indicates. He was touched for six runs, just one earned, on nine hits while he struck out seven. Lopez allowed two unearned runs in the first and three more in a four run fifth inning that broke the game open for Trenton. He fell to 1-5 with the loss.
The Senators tied the game at two with two runs in the fourth. Isaac Ballou drove in a run with a singled and then Chris Bostick drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly to left.
After Trenton took a 6-2 lead, the Senators scored two two-out runs in the seventh on a two-run single by Zach Collier.
Derek Self pitched 2.1 innings and retired all seven batters he faced. Nick Lee pitched the eighth and gave up the last unearned run to Trenton.
No Senator had two hits as six different Sens had one hit each.
Game two of the three-game series is Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. Tyler Mapes is on the hill for the Senators.
