The solo shot for Alvarez came in the seventh inning off Senators’ reliever Ramon Santos. It was the third run of the game for Altoona after plating two in the fourth inning.

Lolo Sanchez led off the fourth with a single, advanced to second on a wild pitch, and stole third before scoring on a Tucupita Marcano sacrifice fly. Later in the frame, Connor Scott knocked home Will Matthiessen with a double down the right field line. Scott finished the game 3-for-4 with the RBI.

Harrisburg scored first in the third inning on a two-run home run from Jecksson Flores.

Two more runs came across on a KJ Harrison double off reliever Omar Cruz in the sixth. Cruz took the loss, allowing two runs in 2.1 innings with four strikeouts.
