TRENTON, N.J. — Southpaw Sean Nolin worked six shutout innings in his second start of the season and catcher Jack Murphy hit his first home run of the season as the Fisher Cats earned a split of a four-game series with a 4-0 win in Trenton Sunday afternoon.

Ramirez (0-1) took the loss. He worked six innings, allowing two hits and three runs (two earned). Ramirez had nine strikeouts.
