New Hampshire Fisher Cats 5, Erie SeaWolves 2
The New Hampshire Fisher Cats got great games all around as they extended their win streak to four games with a 5-2 win opening their series against the Erie SeaWolves. Taylor Cole won his third game, throwing five innings and giving up just one run on five hits (including a solo home run) without walking anyone and striking out three. Murphy Smith gave up an unearned run on three hits over two innings.
With both of the newly acquired prospects (Reese McGuire and Harold Ramirez) getting the night off, it was pre-trade deadline Fisher Cats’ offense that got the job done. Rowdy Tellez was 3/4 with a single, a double, and a home run, scoring twice while Ryan Lavarnway was 2/4 with a run and an RBI. Richard Urena had a triple and a single, scoring once while Derrick Loveless was 1/3 with an RBI.
