Fisher Cats hit three homers in 7-4 win over Sea Dogs
K.C. Hobson, Dalton Pompey and Andy Burns homered to help the New Hampshire Fisher Cats beat the Portland Sea Dogs, 7-4, last night in Manchester.
New Hampshire wasted no time jumping on Portland starter Jeremy Kehrt (1-1) in the first. With one out, Jon Berti (2-for-4) singled and then scored on a two-out double by Kevin Nolan. Nolan came home on a single by Burns (2-for-4) to make it 2-0, then Hobson drilled his fourth homer of the season to cap a four-run outburst.
Pompey added his home run in the second to make it 5-0, and an inning later Burns launched his 10th homer of the season, depositing a hanging curveball into the Dinner in the Den for a 6-0 lead.
Matt Boyd (1-3) earn his first Double-A victory, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six in six innings.
The teams meet again tonight at 7:05. Lefty Daniel Norris (1-0, 4.24) faces Portland’s Henry Owens (12-3, 2.21).
