A night after having a night off, Bryce Harper faced the Akron Aeros, but didn’t finish the game after being carried off the field in the 8th inning with a hamstring injury.  Harper had gone 1-for-3 on the night with a walk and a strikeout.  Harper will likely be placed on the disabled list, according to’s Bill Ladson, but will be re-evaluated tomorrow.

The Senators took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth after Albert Gilbert scored on an error.  The Senators had a big seventh inning thanks to a three-run Derek Norris home run to put the Senators in the lead for good.  Pat Lehmen would give up a run in the 9th, but still earn the save as the Senators won 4-2. 

Harper started the game in left field and batted fifth in the lineup.  He is now hitting .256 at Double-A Harrisburg.

The injury occurred after the right fielder rounded second on a double to right by Archie Gilbert in the Double-A Senators’ 4-2 win over the Aeros.  Harper will be re-evaluated Friday, stay tuned to 106.7 The Fan for updates.  Follow Brendan Darr on twitter: @BrendanDarr1067
