Quiet Cats

Flying Squirrels soar over Fisher Cats

Brad Glenn broke the shutout in the ninth inning with his 17th home run, but by then the damage had been done as Fisher Cats dropped the rubber game of their series with the Richmond Flying Squirrels, 5-1, on Sunday afternoon.

Marcus Stroman kept Richmond scoreless through three innings, stranding five runners in scoring position. In the fourth, he wasn't as lucky as Juan Ciriaco belted a two-run homer to right field to put Richmond on top, 2-0.

The Squirrels tacked on another run thanks to an Adam Duvall single in the fifth, but Stroman worked a quick sixth inning to extend himself to the seventh. That extension proved to be too much as Javier Herrera laced a two-run homer to right-center to push Richmond ahead, 5-0.

Richmond's Jack Snodgrass (10-4) didn't have much trouble with the Fisher Cats (56-62). He allowed one hit through the first four innings before stranding a lead-off double at third base in the fifth. In the sixth, he left the game with an injury after Kenny Wilson hit a one-out double to left-center. Wilson was ultimately stranded to leave Snodgrass with 5 1/3 scoreless innings. The lefty earned his tenth win by allowing just three hits with one strikeout.

The Fisher Cats now hit the road for a brief four-game, three-day series starting Tuesday night in New Britain, Conn.

Late night loss

The Fisher Cats dropped a 13-inning marathon to Richmond, 7-2, on Saturday night. Richmond used three walks, a single, and a grand slam in the game-winning rally to even the series.

Richmond got on the board in the fourth against starter Marcus Walden. With one out, the Squirrels put runners at first and second before Juan Ciriaco singled in a run for a 1-0 lead.

The Fisher Cats answered an inning later to tie the game. Lance Zawadzki and John Tolisano singled to put men at the corners. With two out, Andy Burns doubled to left to score Zawadzki.

Both bullpens carried the torch to keep it 1-1 until the 12th inning. Richmond grabbed a run in the top of the inning against Dustin Antolin with a walk, sacrifice, and an RBI single from Joe Panik. New Hampshire answered in the bottom of the inning when Adam Loewen dropped a single between three fielders to plate pinch-hitter Kevin Ahrens to make it 2-2.

In the 13th, the Squirrels put the game away. Antolin (0-2) issued a leadoff walk before recording a pair of outs. That's when he ran into trouble issuing two more walks to load the bases. Panik then followed with the go-ahead single for another run and a 3-2 lead. Javier Herrera put the game out of reach with a grand slam to right-center field.
