Senators 4, Baysox 3 (13)

Josh Johnson drew a bases-loaded walk in the top of the 13th and Aaron Barrett worked a 1-2-3 bottom of the inning to secure a 4-3 victory over the Bowie Baysox and break the Senators’ six-game losing streak.

Harrisburg starter Nathan Karns was once again sharp as he tossed 5.2 innings allowing only two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out five. The bullpen was fantastic as Matt Swynenberg, Ian Krol, Michael Broadway, and Barrett combined to throw 7.1 innings and allow only one run to score.

Johnson was the offensive star of the night as he went 2 for 4 with a home run, double, and three runs batted in from the nine hole. Destin Hood also broke out of his recent slump with a 3 for 5 performance that saw him raise his batting average 25 points.

Player of the Game: Josh Johnson

From the Windup

• Wilson Ramos completed his rehab with the Senators by catching the first six innings before being substituted by Kris Watts. Ramos went 2 for 3 with a double and scored a run.

• The Senators continued to struggle hitting with runners in scoring position as they went a measly 1 for 8. For the season, they are batting .262 and an even worse .194 with bases loaded.

• Great stat from PennLive’s Geoff Morrow…other than the rehabbing Ramos, the first five batters in the Senators’ order were hitless in a combined 25 at-bats.
