TODAY’S GAMES

The Senators travel to the northeast for a six game road trip beginning with a three game series against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. The Senators took two out of three from Richmond on the prior series, their first series win in just under a month. New Hampshire dropped the final two games of a three game series to Bowie before coming back home. The Fisher Cats took two out of three, including sweeping a doubleheader against the Senators on the only other series of the season between the two from May 31 to June 1.

EASTERN EXPANSION

Beginning Tuesday night, the Senators enter a stretch where their next 15 games are against Eastern League Eastern Division teams. 10 of the 15 games are on the road, and the Senators will play their twelfth Eastern League team when they play a three game series with Portland June 23 to June 25.

STARTING PITCHERS

Matthew Crownover takes the bump in game two of the series. The left-hander is 0-1 with a 5.65 ERA over three starts with the Senators this season. Crownover has allowed exactly three runs in each of his first three starts with the club. The 24-year-old spent the first part of the season with high-A Potomac where he had a 2.82 ERA across 13 games and nine starts before being promoted to the Senators.

The Fisher Cats counter with starter Connor Greene. The right-hander is 3-5 with a 3.47 ERA across 12 starts this season. Greene earned the win in his last start against the Senators on May 31 in game one of a doubleheader, falling one out shy of a seven inning complete game with three runs allowed through six and two-thirds innings.
