MiLB Recap – D-jays win 4th in a row! Boyd Debut

2 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

New Hampshire Fisher Cats @ Altoona Curve (Loss 6-7)

Fisher Cat pitching had a rough start to the game.  Austin Bidens-Dirkx pitched 4 innings and allowed 4 runs which included a home run to Jose Osuna.  Jimmy Cordero came on and did not fair any better.  He allowed 3 runs on 3 hits in 1 inning of work.  Finally Luis Perez and Dustin Antolin showed that the Cats can get people out and pitched 3 innings combined and allowed only 1 hit.  The hole dug by the pitching would be a difficult climb for their offense.

The Cats were able to collect 6 runs them selves but were unable to cap the rally in the final inning.  The bottom of the Cat lineup continues their recent hot streak.  Shane Opitz now has RBI’s in 3 straight games and went 2-3.  The bottom 4 batters in the lineup Sunday collected 8 of the 11 Fisher Cat hits.  The top of the lineup did their job by plating a many of those base runners.  They could have done better platting runs seeing they went 4-11 with runners in scoring position, but they came close to squeaking this one out.

Line of the night

Dwight Smith Jr. 2-4 with 3 runs scored
