HARRISBURG — Tuesday’s seven-inning game between the Harrisburg Senators and Bowie Baysox was suspended in the top of the seventh inning with the score tied 4-4.
The game will resume Wednesday morning beginning at 11:05 a.m. Wednesday’s scheduled game will be a full nine contest and will begin approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the resumed game.
It's the second straight night Senators-Baysox has been suspended mid-game. Earlier Tuesday the Senators and Baysox completed Monday’s suspended game, as the Senators won 8-2.
The Senators opened the scoring in the regularly scheduled contest with a run in the first against Bowie starter Hunter Harvey on an RBI single by Dan Gamache.
Bowie responded in the first when Ryan Mountcastle, facing Senators starter Kyle McGowin, singled in a run to knot the game 1-1.
The Senators plated another pair of runs in the third to take the lead. With Daniel Johnson and Stephen Perez on base on a single and a walk respectively, Juan Soto knocked a run-scoring single. The next batter, Gamache, drove in a run with a groundball fielder’s choice to put the Senators ahead 3-1.
The lead was short-lived as the Baysox struck for three runs in the third to take the lead. After two batters reached with one out, Bowie scored three runs on a run-scoring single, double and sacrifice fly.
McGowin allowed four runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking one across five and two-thirds innings in his first start of 2018 with the Senators. Harvey lasted four innings and allowed three runs on four hits.
The Baysox remained ahead 4-3 until the Senators tied the game in the top of the sixth. After Drew Ward walked with two outs and was pinch run for by Zach Collier, Osvaldo Abreu hit a fly ball to center that was dropped by Cedric Mullins which allowed the tying run to score.
The game was suspended prior to the start of the top of the seventh inning with Khayyan Norfork due to bat.
