Harrisburg Edges Thunder with Two in Ninth

HARRISBURG, PA – The Trenton Thunder and Harrisburg Senators traded runs down the stretch in a 4-2 Thunder loss Friday night at Metro Bank Park.

Eric Ruth pitched 6.1 innings of one-hit ball before surrendering a walk to Brian Goodwin in the bottom of the 7th. Matt Skole followed with his 10th homerun of the season to put the first runs of the game on the scoreboard and make it 2-0 Harrisburg.

Trenton responded immediately with a pair of runs of their own in the top of the 8th inning after Taylor Dugas (2-for-3) began the inning with a double. Dugas advanced to third base two batters later for Aaron Judge. Judge hadn’t homered since May 30th, but launched a Colin Bates offering over the wall in left-centerfield to tie the game 2-2.

The very next inning, however, Harrisburg had two outs with no runners aboard before loading the bases for Skole. The Senators’ DH again delivered with two more RBI to put Harrisburg ahead for good in the game. Skole is now 7-for-13 over his last three games with two homers and 10 RBI.

Ruth gets the no-decision, remaining 4-0 on the season, and with two runs allowed over 6.1 innings his season ERA stays below 2.00. Even with the loss the Thunder are 16-6 over the team’s last 22 games and are 6-2 vs. Harrisburg this season.

The Thunder and Harrisburg Senators continue the three-game series Saturday with a scheduled 6:00 p.m. first pitch between RHP Brady Lail (3-2, 2.53) and LHP Richard Bleier. Pre-game show coverage begins promptly at 5:45 p.m. on 91.3 FM or online at www.trentonthunder.com.
