Final game of the four game series this afternoon between Trenton and Harrisburg on a dreary, overcast day at Waterfront Park.   Another pitcher’s duel as neither team could muster much offense.  Francisco Plasencia hit his first career Double-A home run in the top of the 11th inning as the Senators eek out a 2-1 victory to earn a series split.   Wilkin De La Rosa (pictured) got the start for Trenton today as the left-hander went six shutout innings and gave up three hits and four walks with five strikeouts.  Here are the highlights…

BOTTOM 2nd – A two-out rally for Trenton as James Cooper doubles and Edwar Gonzalez singles home Coop to give Trenton a 1-0 lead.

TOP 7th – The Senators manufacture a run and tie the game.  After a leadoff single by Sean Rooney, Greg Veloz laid down a sac bunt to advance Rooney to second.  Two batters later, Freddie Bynum drilled an RBI single to center to plate Rooney and tie the game at 1-1.
