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.
Gonzalez RBI single
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.
TOP 11th – Francisco Plasencia leads off the inning with a solo home run over the right field wall to break the tie and put Harrisburg on top 2-1.
