Game 93 at Altoona: Lineups and Notes
- Pitching Matchup: Harrisburg: RHP Greg Ross (4-1, 0.56) vs. Altoona: LHP Cody Dickson (6-4, 4.48)
- Greg Ross actually saw his ERA rise after allowing one run in seven innings to Akron last Sunday. He left with a 4-1 lead that the Senators could not hold, as the game went to extra innings before Harrisburg won it in the 12th. Opponents are hitting .202 against Ross, but perhaps more impressive is that Ross has stranded 94 percent of the runners that have reached against him.
- Brandon Waddell has been inconsistent throughout 2016, and especially of late. In two of his last four starts, Waddell has gone seven shutout innings and six shutout innings respectively. However, in the two starts between those gems, Waddell didn’t pitch in the sixth inning. He has just four quality starts among 12 starts this season with Altoona.
- Harrisburg won a thriller Saturday night, beating Altoona 4-2 in 12 innings, as the Senators bullpen was fantastic, throwing 8.1 innings of one-run baseball.
- The Senators are looking for a five-game series victory today that would bring them within two games of Altoona for the Eastern League Western Division lead.
- The Senators are in the midst of a 19-game stretch of consecutive games against divisional opponents. Harrisburg is 6-4 through 10 of the 19 games, and is a divisional-best 32-19 against Western Division opponents.
- Monday, July 18 at Erie, 7:05 p.m.
