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.

Brad Glenn drove in the other two runs for New Hampshire (22-22), one a run on a groundout and the other with a double.

Marcus Walden (3-4) earned the win, going six innings for the Fisher Cats, allowing eight hits and three runs, two of them earned. He walked two and struck out two.

Joel Carreno worked 1 2/3 innings to pick up the save.

Haeger (1-1) went 6 2/3 innings for Portland and took the loss. He allowed four runs on seven hits, striking out four and walking four.

Portland (24-17) got a solo homer from Tony Thomas, and RBI doubles from Heiker Meneses and Michael Almanzar.

The teams continue their three-game series tonight at 6:05 p.m. Righty Deck McGuire (2-3) goes for the Fisher Cats while righty Brandon Workman (5-1) will start for Portland.
