Game Notes

  • Pitching Matchups:
    • Game 1 – New Hampshire: RHP Conner Greene (2-2, 5.06) vs. Harrisburg: RHP Michael Brady (2-4, 4.14)
    • Game 2 – New Hampshire: RHP Jeremy Gabryszwski (5-8, 4.89) vs. Harrisburg: RHP John Simms (7-4, 3.30)
  • Despite striking out a career-high 10 batters in his last start, Michael Brady was saddled with the loss as he allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings against Erie. In his last five outings – all starts – Brady has a 4.73 ERA in 26.2 innings after posting a 2.61 ERA in six appearances as a reliever.
  • John Simms gets the call in the second game of the doubleheader to make his seventh start of the season. Simms has not allowed a run in his last 10 innings, including five scoreless innings in his last start in the second game of a doubleheader at Altoona on July 15. He has a 2.93 ERA in 27.2 innings as a starter this season.
  • Conner Greene, who had a 2.90 ERA with High-A Dunedin in 15 starts, is making his fifth outing with New Hampshire. Since allowing 10 runs in 9.1 innings in his first two starts, Greene has turned in back-to-back quality starts with a pair of six-inning outings.
  • Jeremy Gabryszwski (pronounced gab-ER-isky) has had a tough July, allowing 19 earned runs in just 14.2 innings for an 11.66 ERA. His last outing came in relief as he pitched a scoreless inning against Trenton two days after not making it out of the first inning against the Thunder. He allowed five runs (two earned) in 5.2 innings in his lone start against the Senators this season on June 1.
  • After waiting roughly an hour for the rain to stop on Monday night, it was deemed that FNB Field was unplayable due to wet grounds. This is the third doubleheader for the Senators and fourth for the Fisher Cats. Harrisburg is 3-1 in doubleheader games while New Hampshire is 4-2.
  • The Senators’ 13-9 record in July is the second-best in the Eastern League. Only Binghamton (14-9) has a better winning percentage in the month.
