The first road trip of the year has now concluded for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and it’s ended with a 5-4 loss morning matinee to the Trenton Thunder.
Trenton took an early 2-0 lead thanks to yet another RBI from Mike Ford, his fourth game in a row with a run batted in, and a single by Miguel Andujar that would turn into a fielding error by Roemon Fields, allowing Thairo Estrada to come across the plate.
A homer from Jonathan Davis cut Trenton’s lead in half, but another error, this time attributed to Tim Lopes, turned into another three runs in the fourth.
New Hampshire ‘s Harold Ramirez brought the game to 5-3 thanks to a sac fly to right in the sixth, and the Fisher Cats scored a pair of runs with two outs in the ninth thanks to singles from Fields and Raffy Lopez.
But that would be all for New Hampshire as Oklahoma native Cale Coshow forced Lopes into the final out of the ninth following Fields’ hit, grabbing his fourth save of the year.
Yefry Ramirez grabbed the win for Trenton, his second of the year, allowing five hits over a six-inning performance. Francisco Rios was the loser for New Hampshire, now 2-1 on the season. Rios also went six, also allowing five hits.
Fields and Lopes each had two hits apiece for New Hampshire while Trenton’s Billy McKinney led the way at the plate for the Thunder, going 3-for-3 with a double and a walk.
