Suddenly, Fisher Cats are back in the playoff hunt
Amadeo Zazueta's walk-off double plated Jack Murphy to give the Fisher Cats to a 2-1 Eastern League victory against Trenton before 5,573 fans at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium Sunday.
New Hampshire has won five straight games and seven of its last 10. They open a three-game series Monday in Portland before motoring on to Reading, Pa., for the start of a four-game series against the Fightin' Phils on Thursday. The Fisher Cats currently have a better road record (30-29) than they do at home (32-34).
Trenton relief pitcher and loser Pat Venditte (0-2) started the ninth and issued a one-out walk to Murphy. Venditte was replaced by Danny Burawa, who was greeted by a single from Lance Zawadzki, advancing Murphy to second. Zazueta ended the game with his double to right, easily scoring Murphy.
But New Hampshire leadoff hitter Kenny Wilson matched it in the home eighth, a solo shot to center off Venditte.
Trenton starter Scottie Allen also was impressive, pitching a two-hitter over 6-1/3 scoreless innings on 98 pitches. He walked four and fanned two.
