Fisher Cats give up 11 runs in fourth inning, fall to Trenton, 11-4
The New Hampshire Fisher Cats gave up runs in just one inning, but that inning was a killer, as Trenton scored 11 times in the Thunders’ 11-4 victory yesterday.
The Fisher Cats grabbed a 3-0 lead in the top of the fourth on a two-run triple by Ryan Schimpf and an error, but Trenton answered with 11 runs in the bottom of the inning. The Thunder scored the runs on two singles, two doubles, a triple, two home runs – a two-run shot by Rob Segedin and a grand slam by Gary Sanchez – three walks and an error.
The 11-run frame tied the worst mark the Fisher Cats have allowed in 11 seasons.
Starter Scott Copeland took the loss in his Double-A debut. He allowed eight runs (six earned) over 3.1 innings.
