RubberDucks Outlast Senators, Rain to Claim 6-5 Win


(Harrisburg, Pa.) August 3, 2014 – Erik Gonzalez stroked four hits on Sunday, including a two-run triple, as the Akron RubberDucks defeated the Harrisburg Senators, 6-5, in the finale of a four-game series at Metro Bank Park.

The RubberDucks (61-55) avoided a four-game sweep at the hands of the Senators (47-66), who had won the first three games of the series, all by one-run margins. On Sunday, it was the RubberDucks turn to prevail in a nail-biter.

After an off-day Monday, the RubberDucks (61-55) will begin a three-game series against New Britain at Canal Park on Tuesday night at 7:05. RHP Duke von Schamann (5-6, 3.92) is the scheduled starter for Akron, while LHP Jason Wheeler (2-3, 3.77) is expected to get the ball for Rock Cats.
