He crossed home on a Kevin Keyes RBI double in the bottom of the fifth inning. Ricky Hague also pitched in a multi-hit effort, going 2-for-4.

In his Senators' debut Tim Alderson turned in five innings, allowing one run on four hits. Alderson threw 53 of 79 pitches for strikes. Bryan Harper followed and allowed the go-ahead run on a triple and a double in the sixth inning. Also in his Senators' debut, Richard Bleier kept Harrisburg close by throwing three shutout innings. The Senators finished the four-game set by allowing just six runs.
