Schimpf homers twice, Fisher Cats win in Portland


Ryan Schimpf homered twice and drove in five runs as the Fisher Cats won their fourth straight game, a 7-3 win over the Portland Sea Dogs on Monday at Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine.

Schimpf hit a two-run shot in the first inning off Portland starter Charlie Haeger to stake New Hampshire to a 2-0 lead. With the Fisher Cats clinging to a 4-3 in the top of the ninth, Schimpf hit a three-run bomb to put the result beyond doubt.
