MiLB Recap – Hoffman Debut, Nolan bomb

New Hampshire Fisher Cats vs Reading Fightin Phils (Loss 0-4)

The Cats got shut out on a solid pitching performance by Aaron Nola of the Phils.  The offense just could not find a way to get on base all night.  The Cat offense only collected 5 hits and added 2 walks.  Out of those 5 hits Jorge Flores and Ian Parmley collected 4 of them.  It is really hard to score any runs when only two people can scrap together hits.  Dwight Smith Jr. was able to collect 2 walks but there just was not enough going on at the plate Wednesday night.

Joel Pineiro only allowed 6 hits but they were very timely ones.  The Phils struck at just the right times in the 4th and 7th innings to gather 4 runs off Pineiro.  Those hits included a homer run by Brock Stassi.

Line of the night

Jorge Flores 2-3 with a stolen base
