Game 36 vs. Bowie: Lineup and Notes
The Senators welcome the Bowie Baysox to FNB Field for a short three game homestand beginning Tuesday night.

This is the third series of the season between the two clubs and final time the Baysox come to Harrisburg during the regular season. The season series is tied at three wins each after both teams traded series victories at their respective home parks. The two teams do not play again this season until a three game series August 8 to August 10 in Bowie.
Beginning Tuesday night, the Senators enter a stretch where they play 19 of their next 22 games against Easter League Western Division teams. The only Eastern Division team they play during that stretch is New Hampshire May 30 to June 1.
