Jacobo homers again in 6-3 Fisher Cats win over Phils


 

READING, Pa. - Gabe Jacobo broke a 3-3 tie in the top of the seventh to lift the Fisher Cats to a 6-3 victory over the Reading Fightin Phils on Saturday night.
Jack Murphy added a solo blast in the eighth as the Fisher Cats won their eighth straight against Reading and improved to 12-3 against the Phils on the season.

The seventh-inning tie was set up when the teams traded a trio of runs in their respective halves of the second inning. With two outs in the top half, Tommy Manzella drilled a two-run double to right, and then scored on a single from Adam Loewen for a 3-0 lead against Reading starter Brody Colvin. The Phils answered back against Deck McGuire in the bottom of the frame with a two-run homer and a two-out single to knot it up at 3-3.

It stayed that way as both starters settled in, and worked their way out of any subsequent trouble. McGuire (5-7) worked six full innings to earn the win, allowing three runs with eight strikeouts. Colvin walked six, but left the game after five innings with the score tied 3-3.

The series will come to an end on Sunday afternoon at 1:35 p.m. Marcus Stroman (5-2, 3.25) takes the ball for the Fisher Cats against Reading righty David Buchanan (5-9, 4.40). The Fisher Cats return home on Monday to begin a three-game series with the Portland Sea Dogs.
