MiLB Recap – Lugnuts homer their way into first!

New Hampshire Fisher Cats @ Erie Sea Wolves (Loss 3-6)

Taylor Cole took the ball Tuesday and battled for 6 innings.  He did allow 8 hits which included a solo home run to Tony Thomas but deserved a better fate.  Cole allowed 2 earned runs but was let down by his defense which allowed another run.  Danny Barnes also threw 2 innings in the loss and allowed 3 hits with no earned runs but Cat errors lead to the 3 runs the Erie needed to win the game.  The defense let the team down Tuesday.  Cole and Barnes pitched well enough that this game could have ended much differently.  Yes there were plenty of hits allowed that Erie may have scored more runs regardless but the should be outs could have changed some of their fortunes.

Offensively Dalton Pompey continues to remain hot and collected another 2 hits.  He is working on his Player of the Week credentials well so far this week.  Last week he won those honors after raking homers.  Ryan Schimpf supplied the power on Tuesday however.  He popped a 3 run homer in the 4th inning to tie the game at the time.  The Cat offense would fall flat other then that though and would not score any more runs for the rest of the game.  The 3 run home run may have been enough offense if there wasn’t 4 unearned runs allowed on the three errors.

Line of the night

Ryan Schimpf 1-3 with a home run and 3 RBI
