New Hampshire reliever Alan Farina (0-1) couldn’t protect a one-run lead, giving up four hits to the Western Division-leading Senators (56-48). The Fisher Cats, still in sole possession of second place in the Eastern Division, fell to 52-49.
With Hague batting, Farina was charged with a throwing error trying to pick off Martinson, who rambled to third base.
Goodwin brought home Hague when his single to right deflected by first baseman Kevin Ahrens. Aaron Barrett earned his 20th save for Harrisburg as New Hampshire stranded runners on second and third. Matt Grace (4-1) got the win in relief.
Ahrens provided the Fisher Cats with a brief 4-3 lead when he smacked his second season homer to center field.
Pat McCoy replaced starter Karns in the seventh and yielded a lead-off triple to Adam Loewen. Burns followed with a single against reliever Matt Swynenberg, giving the Fisher Cats a 5-4 edge.
