Bryce Harper and the Harrisburg Senators (67-53) faced the Trenton Thunder (60-59) in their second game of the series Saturday night. Harper had a much quieter night after last night’s towering walk off home run. Harper finished 0-for-3 with a walk on the evening.
The Senators got pounded by the Thunder as starter Oliver Perez got shelled for 7 runs (3 earned) in 4 and 1/3 innings of work. Perez gave up two home runs, including a grand slam in the first inning. Harrisburg couldn’t overcome the poor start and fell 7-4 at home to the Thunder.
Harper batted fifth in the lineup and started in Left Field on the evening. The 0-for-3 night dropped Harper’s average to .244.
The Senators finish their series at home against Trenton tomorrow at 6 pm. Follow Brendan Darr on twitter: @BrendanDarr1067
