HARRISBURG, Penn. – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats leave the Keystone State’s capital without a win, falling for the third-straight game against the Harrisburg Senators, this time a mid-day 5-1 defeat.

Although New Hampshire outhit Harrisburg 11 to 8, they went just 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position, eking out their only run in the eighth. There, Nash Knight was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, bringing Alberto Mineo home for his 18th run of the year.

Unlike Wednesday night, the Fisher Cats couldn’t obtain another near-comeback, going down after just four batters in the ninth.

Harrisburg’s Tyler Mapes (3-2) was the winner, scattering eight hits and a pair of walks during his six innings, striking out four in the process.

Luis Garcia and Luis Sardiñas combined for half of Harrisburg’s eight hits. New Hampshire got three-hit days from Forrest Wall and Riley Adams.

The Fisher Cats look to recover from the sweep with a trip to Altoona on Friday night. Yennsy Diaz (4-4, 3.67 ERA) goes up for the ‘Cats at 5:45 p.m. against Altoona southpaw Sean Brady (0-2, 9.64 ERA)
