Harrisburg, PA - Bouncing back from his first outing at Double-A, Ryan Castellani pitched five scoreless innings Tuesday night and the bullpen and timely hits did the rest, as the Hartford Yard Goats beat the Harrisburg Senators 4-0. The win evened the three-game series, before a crowd of 2,673.

Harrisburg, PA - Bouncing back from his first outing at Double-A, Ryan Castellani pitched five scoreless innings Tuesday night and the bullpen and timely hits did the rest, as the Hartford Yard Goats beat the Harrisburg Senators 4-0. The win evened the three-game series, before a crowd of 2,673.

Castellani, the Colorado Rockies second round draft choice in 2014, gave up nine runs in six innings on Opening Day at Richmond. Against the Senators the right-hander allowed four hits, walked two and tied his season-high in strike outs with eight. He was lifted after throwing 89 pitches.
Austin Wright pitched a scoreless sixth inning and Shane Broyles closed it out with three innings of one-hit baseball for his first save, Castellani's first win and the club's first shut out of the season.
Hartford scored the only run it needed in the second inning, when Drew Weeks tripled to left-center and scored on a sacrifice fly by Omar Carrizales. Hartford made it 2-0 in the sixth inning on a nearly 400 foot home run by lefty hitting Max White to right-center field. The Goats tacked on a run in the seventh on a two-out single by Carrizales and a triple to right-center by Josh Fuentes, then closed out the scoring in the eighth on a double by White and single by Ryan McMahon.
White had two hits to pace the Hartford attack.
The Yard Goats wrap up their first road trip of the season on Wednesday at noon. LHP Jack Wynkoop will pitch against RH Jaron Long. The game can be heard on WPOP AM 1410.
Meanwhile, the players are looking forward to the opening of Dunkin' Donuts Park.
"We can't wait," said pitcher Parker French. It's a great ballpark. They did a great job. We can't wait for Thursday night to get in there."
The players worked out at the park, when they team arrived from spring training last week.
