SeaWolves 18, Senators 4
- Erie’s Trei Cruz lined Mitchell Parker’s first pitch into left field, bouncing off the wall, as the leadoff hitter coasted into second base with a stand-up double. Four pitches later Colt Keith drilled a home run into the scoreboard seats to give the SeaWolves an early 2-0 lead. It was a sign of things to come for both Keith and Parker.
- The southpaw became the Senators’ second starter to fail to get out of the first inning this season (preceded by Garvin Alston in a spot start for a doubleheader nightcap against New Hampshire on May 4) when he allowed eight runs on five hits and three walks while recording only one out.
- Keith made history for the SeaWolves as the former fifth round draft pick hit for the cycle, going 6-for-6 with two home runs and seven RBIs. Keith became the first opponent to collect six hits in a ballgame against the Senators, breaking an 18-way tie of players who had five.
- Keith wasn’t the only one doing damage to Harrisburg’s collective earned run average either as the SeaWolves pounded out 22 hits and scored 18 runs. Only three games in Senators’ history saw more base hits from an opponent than Tuesday night’s debacle.
- Surely lost in the rout was Drew Millas’s day at the plate as the Harrisburg catcher went 2-for-5 with his 3rd homer of the year (estimated at 387 feet) and a double to drive in four runs. Donovan Casey, Frankie Tostado, and José Sánchez each chipped in multi-hit games in the losing effort.
- Down 14 runs headed into the ninth inning, Harrisburg manager Delino DeShields sent position player Jack Dunn out to mop-up the last three outs. Dunn, who previously had two scoreless appearances on the mound for Wilmington in 2021, was touched up for his first run ruining his career 0.00 ERA.
