Rain postponed baseball at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on Friday night, leading to a pair of contests on Saturday night where victories were divided between the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Altoona Curve.

Altoona won the first game 7-5 on the back of a three-run sixth inning highlighted by RBI base hits from Jerrick Suiter and Jordan George off incoming reliever Dusty Isaacs.

Suiter was 3-for-4 at the plate, contributing a homer earlier in the contest. Justin Maffei also recorded three hits for Altoona, his second three-hit game this month.

Reese McGuire hit his third home run in the past week for the Fisher Cats in the loss.

Sean Reid-Foley pitched 5 1/3 innings in the loss, giving up 11 of Altoona’s 13 hits and was the pitcher of record for six of Altoona’s runs.

Brandon Cumpton earned the win thanks to his two outs in relief of starter Austin Coley, Tate Scioneaux earned his 13th save of the year and his second save of the year against New Hampshire.

The Fisher Cats shut down Altoona’s run production in the second game, bouncing back with a 5-1 victory.

Even though both teams had seven hits, Conner Greene only allowed multiple base runners in two of his five innings of work, scattering four hits and two walks on his way to the win.

Daniel Young and Andrew Case pitched a perfect sixth and seventh in relief of Greene to seal New Hampshire’s victory.

The loss went to Casey Sadler, who like Greene, also pitched five innings in the contest.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. had a home run in the first off Sadler, adding a double in the sixth. Emilio Guerrero also added a double in the sixth that brought Gurriel across the plate, his second hit and third RBI of the game.

The two teams meet on Sunday for a 1:35 matchup that will conclude New Hampshire’s homestand. Ryan Borucki (1-3, 2.16 ERA) will start for the Fisher Cats against Altoona’s J.T. Brubaker (7-4, 4.51 ERA).
