SeaWolves rough up Fisher Cats, 16-2
After retiring the first two batters of the game on flyouts, Fisher Cats starter Sean Nolin was knocked out of the game by a line drive to his throwing elbow, and it went downhill from there for New Hampshire.
Reliever Matt Wright came on and gave up 12 runs on 13 hits and three walks in just 3 1∕3 innings as the Fisher Cats lost to the Erie SeaWolves, 16-2, last night. Erie remained on top of the Western Division at 36-30, while New Hampshire dropped to fifth in the Eastern Division at 32-36.
Erie scored three runs in each of the first two innings, added four more in the third, and three more in both the fourth and fifth to put the game away early. The SeaWolves touched up four Fisher Cat pitchers for 24 hits.
Clint Robinson homered for New Hampshire’s first run, and Brian Van Kirk drove in A.J. Jimenez with the other.
