Daily Bryce Harper Watch – August 14th, 2011
Bryce Harper and the Harrisburg Senators (68-53) hosted the Trenton Thunder (60-60) for the final game of their three-game series Sunday night. Harper had a solid all-around game tonight, going 2-for-2 with 2 walks and 2 stolen bases. Despite getting on base four times, Harper was never driven in.
Harrisburg was in control all game thanks to Erik Arnesen. Arnesen gave up one unearned run while striking out 10 in 7 innings. Pat Lehman came in and gave up a run in his lone inning, before McCoy and Martin came in to close the door in the 9th for the Senators.
Harper batted fifth in the Senators lineup and started in Left Field. The game tonight raised Harper’s average to .256 at AA Harrisburg. Tuesday night the Senators will start their series against the Akron Aeros.
