New Hampshire Fisher Cats vs Trenton Thunder (Loss 4-9)
A late offensive surge was just not enough to fight off a storm from the Thunder offence Sunday. Trenton got the jump on starter Shane Dawson and at first just chipped away at the Cats. Dawson pitched 4.1 innings before getting chased. He allowed four earned run while walking four and striking out three. The big blow was the solo homer by Tyler Wade in the 3rd. Wade would be a thorn in the side of the Cats the entire game as he scored three times. Chad Smith, pitching in the 9th, allowed four runs that clinched the Thunder’s win.
Pitching Grade – C-
On offence the Cats battled late in the game to attempt a major comeback but were shut down trying to score 7 runs in the 9th.
