The SeaWolves notched their second shutout in the past three games as they took down the Harrisburg Senators 3-0 on Tuesday night at UPMC Park.

The SeaWolves broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth against Harrisburg starter Brady Dragmire. Will Maddox led off with a single and moved to second on a passed ball. Maddox moved to third on Josh Lester groundout and scored on a Gabriel Quintana groundout for a 1-0 lead.

Erie added to the lead in the fifth. Jake Rogers and Troy Montgomery started the inning with back-to-back singles and moved into scoring position on an error. With one out, Jacob Robson reached on an infield single, plating Rogers for a 2-0 lead. Maddox followed with a sacrifice fly to left, plating Montgomery for a 3-0 lead.

Erie starter Spencer Turnbull (1-3) was superb, earning his first Double-A win. He hurled six scoreless frames, allowing two hits with two walks and six strikeouts. It was the second straight quality start for Turnbull.

Dragmire (2-2) took the loss despite a quality start. He allowed three runs on eight hits with a walk and three strikeouts in seven innings.

Kyle Dowdy earned his first career save tossing two scoreless innings with three strikeouts.
