TONIGHT’S GAME: The Senators and Erie Seawolves play game one of a seven-game series tonight at FNB Field. Erie is coming off a six-game sweep at home against Richmond. The teams meet once more in the final week of June in Erie.

LAST TIME OUT: The Harrisburg Senators rallied for a 5-3 win Sunday afternoon over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at Delta Dental Stadium. Harrisburg scored three times in the eighth inning turning a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 advantage. With the score tied in the eighth inning, Cortland Lawson lined a two-run, two out double down the left field line giving the Senators a 5-3 lead.

TODAY’S STARTING PITCHER: LHP Lucas Knowles takes the ball for the Sens this evening. This is his fourth spot start for the Senators. As a starter this season, he’s 0-1 with a 4.70 ERA in 3 starts, 7.2 innings. This is his fourth season and the second with Harrisburg. Last year he was 7-4, 4.48 ERA in 39 outings.
