Despite two-hit games from center fielder Kevin Pillar and catcher Sean Ochinko, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats dropped a 4-1 decision to New Britain in the second game of a home doubleheader Saturday.

New Hampshire won the first contest 4-2. That game began Friday night, but was suspended because of rain.

New Britain scored all four runs off New Hampshire starter Marcus Walden (3-5) in the nightcap, which was a seven-inning contest. Walden surrendered 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Shortstop Danny Santana had three of New Britain's 11 hits in the game.

Kevin Nolan scored New Hampshire's lone run in the fourth inning. Nolan reached base on an error, and came home on Ochinko's two-out double.

New Britain's Pat Dean (2-5) pitched the first 5 1/3 innings to collect the win. He allowed six hits, walked one and struck out one.

New Britain raised its record to 23-26 with the victory. New Hampshire dropped to 24-26.

Relievers Chorye Spoone and Joel Carreno tossed five innings of scoreless baseball in the first half of the doubleheader. Spoone (2-2) held New Britain to one hit in three innings and was credited with the win. He struck out two and walked two. Carreno didn't allow a hit in the final two innings.

New Hampshire led 3-2 when the game was suspended Friday, and added to its lead in the seventh, when Brad Glenn's RBI single scored Brian Van Kirk. Van Kirk scored three of New Hampshire's four runs. Glenn had two RBIs in the game.

New Britain starter B.J Hermsen (1-5) allowed three runs (two earned) in three innings Friday night and took the loss. Hermsen walked three.

Right fielder Jordan Parraz provided New Britain's offensive highlight when he hit a solo home run off of New Hampshire starter Marcus Stroman in the fourth inning Friday. Stroman allowed two runs on six hits in four innings before the game was suspended. He struck out five and walked one.

After New Britain took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, New Hampshire struck for two runs in the bottom half of the inning. Kevin Pillar tied the contest by scoring on Clint Robinson's RBI groundout, and Van Kirk gave the Fisher Cats a 2-1 lead when he scored on Glenn's sacrifice fly.

New Hampshire added a run in the third. Van Kirk scored on Ryan Schimpf's groundout.
