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
