The Akron RubberDucks defeated the Harrisburg Senators 6-5 in the final game at FNB Field this season. Senators starter Greg Ross tossed a quality start in the loss.

The Senators held a 2-0 lead after two following a Jose Marmolejos sacrifice fly in the first and Yadiel Hernandez home run in the second, his 10th of the season. 

After Akron cut the lead to one in seventh, the club plated five runs in a nine-batter eighth, highlighted by back-to-back two run doubles by Bobby Bradley and Dorsyss Paulino to take a 6-2 lead. 

The Senators fought back for three runs in the eighth on three consecutive singles and a pair of run-scoring groundouts to close the gap to a run. However, Robbie Aviles retired the side in order in the ninth to notch his second save and secure the Akron 6-5 victory. 

Jacob Lee (1-0) picked up the win with a scoreless inning in relief while Ross (5-4) took the loss. The right-hander allowed four runs, three earned, over seven-plus innings.

Victor Robles extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a first inning single and Marmolejos singled in his final at-bat in the eighth to extend his hitting streak to 15 games.
