The Fisher Cats scored a pair of runs in the eighth inning to come from behind and knock off Portland, 5-4, on Thursday night for their sixth straight win in the opener of a four-game series at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.

The Fisher Cats were down 4-3 starting the eighth and Brad Glenn reached on a one-out walk issued by reliever Miguel Celestino. Glenn went to third on Clint Robinson's double to deep center field. He scored on a Celestino wild pitch that went to the backstop.

Shortstop Kevin Nolan was next and lifted a fly ball to right fielder J.C. Linares. Glenn tagged and avoided a tag by catcher Christian Vazquez in a close play at the plate.
The Fisher Cats improved to 39-40 and moved within a half game of Portland in the Eastern Division.
