Fishers fall short at Bowie


 

Jack Murphy had three hits, including a home run, but the New Hampshire Fisher Cats fell short in their series finale in Bowie, Md., on Thursday afternoon, losing 4-3.
 
Andy Burns added a two-run home run, his second in as many games, as the Fisher Cats (53-56) dropped two of three in Bowie to open their six-game road trip.

Bowie pulled ahead in the seventh inning against Ryan Tepera (8-8). The inning began with a walk before Niuman Romero stroked a double into the right field corner to put Bowie on top, 4-3.

New Hampshire had one more rally attempt before the game ended. With two outs in the ninth, Murphy singled through the middle for his second three-hit game of the season. Kenny Wilson followed with a bloop to right field to advance Murphy to third. But with two outs, Burns flied to center to end the game.

The Baysox broke a scoreless tie in the second inning against Sean Nolin, plating three runs. Brandon Waring began the frame with his 17th home run. Run-scoring singles by Garabez Rosa and Kyle Hudson followed before Nolin ended the inning on back-to-back strikeouts with the bases loaded.

The Fisher Cats now head further south to begin a three-game series in Richmond tonight at 7:05. Right-hander Kyle Drabek will make his first start since joining the Fisher Cats on his road back from Tommy John surgery. He'll be opposed by Richmond righty Craig Westcott (4-10, 4.28).

The Fishers are home Tuesday to begin a six-game homestand against Bowie and Richmond.
