Ryan Schimpf, Adam Loewen and Clint Robinson each blasted solo home runs to lead Ryan Tepera and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats to a 5-2 Eastern League baseball win over the Reading Fightin Phils Sunday before 5,990 fans at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.

Tepera (4-1) tossed six shutout innings for the victory, delivering the Fisher Cats to their first series sweep of the season.
