Trenton lost to Harrisburg 7-4:
Jose Pirela started the bottom of the first with a double, scoring on a double play ball by Zoilo Almonte. Harrisburg scored three runs in the second on four singles and a walk. Dellin Betances replaced Mikey O’Brien in the top of the third, allowing Jimmy Van Ostrand to reach on an error. Zach Walters singled to right and Destin Hood tripled them in for a 5-1 Thunder deficit. Kevin Mahoney doubled in the fourth, scoring on a single by Jose Gil. Harrisburg scored two more runs in the top of the eighth, and Trenton tried to put together a rally in the bottom of the inning. Pirela drew a walk and scored on a double by Addison Maruszak.

Maruszak went 3-5 with a run scored, a double and a RBI. Mahoney went 2-4 with a run scored and a double. …
