Harrisburg, PA - The Harrisburg Senators completed a perfect weekend with a 7-6 win over the Bowie Baysox on Monday night. The Senators took all five games from Bowie and have won eight straight, their second eight-game winning streak in the past two seasons. Harrisburg is now 28-20 on the season while Bowie drops to 24-28.

Bowie did not lead for an entire inning the entire series. The two teams have played 12 games this year and Harrisburg has won 10 of the 12.

Trailing 2-0 into the bottom of the 2nd, Steve Lombardozzi tied the game with a bases loaded two-run single. After Bowie retook the lead at 4-3, Bill Rhinehart hit a three-run home run, his ninth on the season, to give the Sens a 6-4 lead in the bottom of the 3rd. Tyler Moore homered leading off the 5th for the final tally of the night for Harrisburg.

Tanner Roark started and was roughed up in the first three innings before settling down and retiring the final ten batters he faced for his second win on the season. Matt Chico pitched an inning and gave up a run, making the game 7-5. Carlos Martinez gave up a lead-off triple in the 8th, but retired the final six batters for his second save on the season.
