MiLB Recap – Fisher Cats Slip by Portland

2 of 5

Mandatory Credit:

New Hampshire Fisher Cats @ Portland Sea Dogs (Win 2-0)

Fisher Cat Pitching was stellar Wednesday.  The Cat pitching tossed a combined 7 hit shutout.  John Anderson got the ball rolling as he pitched 6.2 innings and gave up all 7 hits but allowed no runs.  Chad Girodo pitched in a hold that was good for 1.1 innings and then Wil Browning came on to get the save in the 9th.  As impressive as the shut out is I thought that the fact none of the pitchers allowed a free pass all game was the most impressive.  It is not very often you see that at this level but it goes to show what working the strike zone can do for you in this game.  The amazing pitching performance kept this pitchers duel close.

Dalton Pompey continues to impress as he went 2-4 with an RBI Wednesday.  He is now batting a gaudy .378 for his time with the Cats.  Batting behind him Dwight Smith Jr. also collected 2 hits and an RBI as he continues to roll on his now All-Star campaign.  The 2 RBI singles would be the only runs scored by the Cats but would prove to be plenty of run support as the pitching continued to silence the Sea Dog’s bats.
