Reading Fightin Phils

Fightin Phils blow two leads, lose in 12 innings

The Fightin Phils blew leads in the ninth and 12th innings in an 8-7 loss at Harrisburg Thursday night.

Reading built a 4-0 lead, then led 5-2 heading into the ninth inning.

But the Senators scored three times in the ninth to force extra innings.

The Fightins then scored twice to take a 7-5 lead in the 12th, only to see the Senators score three times in the bottom of the 12th to win it.

Jay Johnson (0-2, 13.50) blew the save and suffered the loss on the mound.

Aaron Altherr, Logan Moore, and Carlos Alonso all had three hits to pace the Fightin Phils offense.

Reading (30-27) will return to Baseballtown to open a seven-game homestand Friday night against Richmond.
