NH Fisher Cats Vs. Hartford Yard Goats on April 15.

Fisher Cats Take 8-5 Win

Alford Hits First Double-A HR as Fisher Cats Sweep Hartford.

Hartford, CT - In a game that seemed to have it all, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (5-4) completed a three-game series sweep of the Hartford Yard Goats (3-7) with an 8-5 Saturday night at Dunkin' Donuts Park.

The win was New Hampshire's fourth consecutive victory, which secured their first road sweep in a three-game series since May-June of 2014. After a scoreless first, the Fisher Cats sent ten men to the plate in the second and scored five runs to take an early lead. Ryan McBroom singled and Gunnar Heidt walked to put two men on for Raffy Lopez, who tripled to centerfield - the first three bagger by a Fisher Cat this season - and gave New Hampshire a 2-0 advantage. Jonathan Davis followed with an RBI single and scored two batters later when Tim Lopes doubled.

Anthony Alford plated Lopes with a double of his own later in the inning to make it 5-0. Hartford tagged starter Jon Harris (W, 1-1) for a pair of home runs - including a two-run shot by Dillon Thomas - in the bottom of the second, but the St. Louis, MO native limited the damage and kept it a 5-3 game.

Just when it felt like the Yard Goats were back in the game, Lopez delivered another big blow in the third. The New Hampshire catcher launched a two out solo shot that nearly left the stadium to pad the Fisher Cats lead with another run. Both sides traded runs in the later innings.

After Hartford made it 6-4 in the sixth, McBroom singled home Alford - who walked in the previous at-bat - on a 3-2 pitch to put New Hampshire back up by three runs. The Yard Goats scored in the eighth to cut the lead to two, but Alford sealed the deal with a two out solo home run. Tim Mayza and Jose Fernandez (S, 2) were impressive in relief to hold Hartford at bay.

The Fisher Cats return to Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on Friday, April 21 also to play Hartford. An Atlas Fireworks show will follow that contest. For tickets, visit
