BOWIE, Md. – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats managed just four hits in the first leg of their six-game southern swing, a 6-0 defeat at the hands of the Bowie Bay Sox.

Yusniel Diaz brought home Mason McCoy on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the first and the rest was academic as Bowie hurler Dean Kremer exacted revenge for his loss in Manchester last.

Kremer pitched seven frames and allowed just five baserunners while striking out eight New Hampshire batters on the way to his first win of the season.

New Hampshire starting pitcher Yennsy Diaz didn’t pitch a horrible game either, but the Bay Sox made the most of the seven hits they collected off Diaz in his six-inning appearance. Bowie ultimately added three more runs off Diaz following the first-inning score, highlighted by a pair of RBI doubles from Ademar Rifaela and Rylan Bannon.

Carlos Perez smacked home a two-RBI single in the eighth to finish off the scoreline, with McCoy and Rifaela each finishing with two hits apiece.

This marks the second time the Fisher Cats have been shutout this season following a 2-0 loss to Reading in April 9.

The series continues Wednesday night. RHP Hector Perez (4-2, 5.34 ERA) will go for New Hampshire while LHP Bruce Zimmerman (1-1, 2.85 ERA) gets the nod for Bowie.
