Fishers fall at Reading
Reading used two home runs to tie the game in the fourth inning and Cody Asche drove in the winning run in the fifth as the Phillies downed the Fisher Cats, 4-3, in Reading, Pa., on Saturday.
Reading trailed 3-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning. Darin Ruf hit a solo shot to make it 3-1, and later in the inning Sebastian Valle hit a two-run shot to tie things up.
The Phillies took the lead for good in the bottom of the fifth inning when Miguel Abreu scored on a ground out by Asche.
New Hampshire starter Fernando Hernandez suffered the loss and gave up all four runs over his 5 2/3 innings of work on the mound. He gave up 11 hits, struck two out and walked two.
Matt Wright and Ronald Uviedo did their best to keep things close after that. They combined to pitch 2 1/3 innings of no-hit ball. Wright went the first 2/3 and Uviedo went the next 1 2/3, striking out two.
Mark Sobolewski gave New Hampshire an early lead when he hit his 14th home run of the season to make it 1-0 in the top of the second inning.
The visitors extended the lead to 3-0 with two more runs in the top of the fourth inning. Kenen Bailli drove in one with an RBI single and later scored on a throwing error after he had stolen third base.
