The last time fans of the Erie SeaWolves saw the team at home, they were streaking.
They still are after Monday’s game at Jerry Uht Park. Only now, it’s for the lesser.
The SeaWolves, whose previous homestand comprised part of a six-game victory binge, lost their fourth straight overall after Reading beat them 5-3. Erie (20-22) totaled 11 hits, including home runs from Jordan Lennerton and Rawley Bishop, but still stranded 10 bases runners.
Of those 10, eight were in scoring position.

Reading (25-17) accounted for all of its runs over the first five innings off Erie starter Zack Segovia. The top three batters in the Phillies’ order, Tyson Gillies, Cesar Hernandez and Tug Hulett, combined for five hits, four runs and three RBIs.
Darin Ruf also doubled for his Eastern League-leading 32nd RBI.
Lennerton’s solo homer was his 10th overall. That temporarily tied him with Trenton’s Cody Johnson for the league lead.
