MANCHESTER, N.H. – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats finished out their latest home stand on Sunday with a 2-0 win against the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Compared to the three-hour plus affair on Saturday night, Sunday’s matinee breezed by as the early innings were dominated by both sides’ pitching staffs as well as a few baserunning miscues by New Hampshire.

Chad Spanberger’s RBI double in the sixth gave the game its first two runs, chasing Richmond starting pitcher Brandon Beachy from the contest.

Nate Pearson threw five innings for the first time since his promotion from the Florida State League in early May.

Willy Ortiz kept Richmond hitless the rest of the way, getting the win.

Beachy got the loss, lasting 5 2/3 innings and striking out four Fisher Cats while allowing six hits to fall to 1-2.

At the plate, Forrest Wall and Vinny Capra each collected a pair of hits for the Fisher Cats,

The Fisher Cats now have Monday off as they travel to Maryland for a three-game set with the Bowie Bay Sox beginning on Tuesday at 6:35 p.m.

In Game 1, New Hampshire sends Yennsy Diaz (4-4, 3.71 ERA) up against Bowie’s Dean Kremer (0-3, 6.89 ERA). Kremer got the loss on Tuesday against New Hampshire in Manchester, allowing seven hits and a pair of walks in a six-inning performance.
