Kevin Ahrens clubbed a three-run homer and A.J. Jimenez had a two-run bomb for New Hampshire, which compiled 15 hits off four Richmond pitchers.
Deck McGuire earned his seventh win with eight innings of four-hit, two-run ball. He struck out six and walked only one to improve his record to 7-9.
New Hampshire trailed 2-1 but took control with a four-run third inning, keyed by Nolan’s double and Jimenez’s homer. They tacked on three in the fifth thanks to Ahrens’ home run, and another three in the sixth on two wild pitches and a sacrifice fly.
