The Akron RubberDucks retained their lead in the division with two games remaining in the first half by beating the Senators 3-1 Friday night at Canal Park. Harrisburg scored first on an unearned run in the second inning, but the lead didn’t last long as Akron parlayed a hit batter and two walks into two runs to take the lead.

Steven Fuentes started and went three innings. He allowed two runs in the second on one hit and a sacrifice fly. He walked three and hit two batters.

The loss was a season-high seventh straight for the Senators. The Senators went 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position, stranding eight runners including five in scoring position with two outs.
