Borucki kept a no-hitter into the fifth, leaving the game after seven innings of work, giving up just a pair of hits and no walks, striking out seven batters overall.

Hartford starter Jack Wynkoop was also masterful in his complete game performance but couldn’t get his first win of the year over the Fisher Cats, allowing Andrew Guillotte to come home off a Jonathan Davis sacrifice fly in the third.

The Fisher Cats would get an insurance run in the eighth, off a deep Jonathan Davis double to right centerthat brought home Gunnar Heidt. New Hampshire might have gotten more, but Davis was gunned down at third, with Wynkoop limiting the damage.

That gave the Yard Goats one last shot in the ninth, but Andrew Case came for an inning of relief to retire the side to earn his eighth save of the year.

Wynkoop allowed just five hits, striking out three and giving up no walks in his third eight inning appearance of the year.

New Hampshire will host its final home game of the year on Sunday with a 1:35 p.m. matinee to conclude the series against Hartford. The Yard Goats will send Nick Additon (0-2, 1.98 ERA) to the mound against the Fisher Cats’ Jon Harris (6-10, 5.48 ERA).
