Fisher Cats settle for split of doubleheader

Alan Farina's wild pitch on a ball four intentional walk allowed Eddie Rosario to score from third base to give New Britain a come-from-behind 6-5 Eastern League win against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats Tuesday in the nightcap of a doubleheader at New Britain Stadium.

Gabe Jacobo drove in all five runs for the Fisher Cats with two homers.

In the opener, Ryan Schimpf, Andy Burns and Adam Loewen each belted a solo homer and Sean Nolin pitched a complete game nine-hitter to lead the Fisher Cats to a 5-4 triumph.

In the nightcap, Jacobo, now batting with .347 with five homers, had a two-run homer in the fourth inning and a three-run blast with two outs in the sixth inning.

Losing relief pitcher Randy Boone of New Hampshire started the seventh and final inning with a 5-3 lead. The lead evaporated quickly as doubles from Kyle Knudson, Angel Morales and Rosario tied the game at 5-5.

Farina had two wild pitches, the first one allowing Rosario to reach third before throwing the last one away with Reynaldo Rodriguez at the plate.

New Hampshire starter Tyson Brummett pitched four innings, allowing four hits.

In seven innings of the opener, Nolin (8-3, 3.01 ERA) walked one batter and fanned four on 109 pitches, 77 for strikes.

Schimpf opened the scoring in the second inning with his 19th homer, to right field.

The lead swelled to 4-0 in the third frame after two outs. Burns (his sixth, to left field) and Loewen (his 14th, to right) each hit back-to-back solo homers. Brad Glenn continued the inning with a single and scored on a throwing error by second baseman Adam Pettersen.

In the home fourth, the Rock Cats rallied for three runs. Dan Rohlfing walked and scored on a double by Evan Bigley. Nolin then surrendered a two-run homer to Rodriguez, his 19th of the season, to left field.

The Fisher Cats scored the eventual winning run in the fifth inning. Kenny Wilson opened the frame with a single and scored on a double to left by Burns.

With one swing, New Britain's Miguel Sano made it a one-run game again with his 14th homer, to left field, in the home fifth. But his homer came just after Nolin picked off New Britain runner Danny Santana at first base. Wilson and Burns each had two hits in the seven-inning affair.

The Fisher Cats announced before the game that 24-year-old righthander Dayton Marze was added to the roster. He appeared in 22 games with Dunedin this summer, going 1-1 with a 3.41 ERA. He was selected by the Blue Jays in the 14th round of the 2010 draft.

Righthander Dustin Antolin (0-2, 11.41 ERA) was transferred from New Hampshire to Dunedin.
