The SeaWolves dropped game two of the three game series with Reading by a 7-2 final on Tuesday night from First Energy Stadium.
Reading broke open the scoring in the fourth inning smacking two homers off Erie starter Myles Jaye. Jorge Alfaro led off the home half with a solo blast over the center field fence. Dylan Cousins then doubled and Rhys Hoskins singled to leave two on base for Jake Fox. Fox then stepped to the plate and belted a three run blast over the wall in left to give the Fightins a 4-0 lead.
The Fightin Phils would tack on three more runs in the sixth inning to increase the lead to 7-0. Hoskins led the inning off with a single and was followed by a Fox single. Aaron Brown walked to load the bases and a batter later Osmel Aguila smacked a single up the middle to plate Hoskins. Angelo Mora then followed with a single to plate Fox and then a sacrifice fly from KC Serna would bring home Brown.
Erie started to rally in the ninth inning by putting up two runs, but it would not be enough as they fell in game two by a 7-2 final. Kody Eaves doubled to start the inning and was plated on a Grayson Greiner double a batter later. A Casey Frawley moved Greiner to third and Wynton Bernard smacked a single to eventually score Frawley.
SeaWolves starter Myles Jaye (3-6) took the loss on the mound going four and a third innings allowing four runs on six hits while striking out five. Tom Eshelman (1-0) picked up the win tossing five scoreless innings while striking out two. Each starter had their outing cut short by an hour and forty-six minute rain delay.
The SeaWolves will look to avoid the series sweep in game three tomorrow as the series wraps up at 7:05.
