Senators Keep Hopes Alive with 5-4 Win

Fedde K’s 12; Difo drives in the game winner

On Wednesday in Bowie, the Senators squandered a 4-1 seventh inning lead but rallied to beat Bowie 5-4 in ten innings. Harrisburg (71-65) guarantees at least a .500 season with the win.

Erick Fedde started and pitched five innings striking out a career-high 12 batters but took a no decision. Five pitchers followed Fedde and all earned some type of decision in the game.

With the score 4-4 in the tenth, Rafael Bautista walked and stole second, he moved to third on a bunt single by Andrew Stevenson and then scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Wilmer Difo.

Isaac Ballou drove in the Sens first run to tie the game in the second when he singled to score Shawn Pleffner. The Sens took a 2-1 lead in the second on an RBI ground out by Bautista. They extended the lead to 3-1 when Andrian Sanchez scored on a wild pitch. In the seventh, Khayyan Norfork was hit by a pitch to drive in a run and give the Sens a 4-1 lead.

Bowie scored two in the seventh on a two-run home run by Glyn Davis. They tied the game in the ninth on a two-out RBI double by Chris Dickerson.

Andrew Robinson pitched a perfect tenth to earn his ninth save of the season. Nick Lee retired Chance Sisco in the ninth with the winning run at second to earn the win.

The final game of the four-game series is Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. The Senators send Mark Blackmar to the mound. The game can be heard on Fox Sports 1460, iHeart Radio, and the Tune In app beginning with the Matt LeCroy show at 6:50 p.m.
