TRENTON, N.J. – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats dropped their second straight Garden State game on Tuesday night, falling to the Trenton Thunder, 3-1.

Chris Gittens’ fifth homer of the year gave Trenton a two-run advantage in the first, adding another homer to right in the sixth.

Only Santiago Espinal’s RBI single in the fifth spoiled what was a spotless night for Trenton’s pitching staff, as Albert Abreu and Trevor Lane limited New Hampshire to just three total hits on the evening

Abreu (1-2) got revenge for his loss last week in Manchester, going six innings in the win.

New Hampshire’s pitchers didn’t do much worse, with Zach Logue finishing six innings in the loss, allowing just four hits on top of the two bombs by Gittens.

After the departure of Logue (2-1), Willy Ortiz allowed just one hit in his two innings of relief.

Both teams return for the series finale at ARM&HAMMER Park tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. as New Hampshire’s Yennsy Diaz (1-2, 4.29 ERA) takes on a Trenton starter yet to be named.
