Spinners rally to nip Jammers

LOWELL – The Lowell Spinners overcame an early deficit, scoring runs in the seventh and eighth inning, taking the lead when Carlos Asuaje was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh, to earn a 5-4 win over the Jamestown Jammers last night at LeLacheur Park.

Jamestown (16-10) took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning on a home run by Danny Collins, who took the New York-Penn League in home runs with a blast to left-centerfield, his sixth of the season.

Lowell (15-10) pulled ahead in the third inning. After an infield single by Manuel Margot with one-out, a Kevin Mager singled to third to put runners on the corners. Kendrick Perkins followed with a double to center to score Margot and Jantzen Witte delivered a double of his own, scoring both Mager and Perkins to give the Spinners a 3-2 lead.

The lead was short-lived however as the Jammers struck back before the Spinners had the final word..

Mager once again led the Spinners offense with a three-hit night, raising his average to .318. Perkins and Margot each added two hit nights.

Fisher Cats rally

Gabe Jacobo broke a 3-3 tie in the top of the seventh to lift the Fisher Cats (45-46) to a 6-3 victory over the Reading Fightin Phils (38-53) last night. Jack Murphy added a solo blast in the eighth as the Fisher Cats won their eighth straight against Reading and improved to 12-3 against the Phils on the season.

The Fisher Cats took the lead against the Reading bullpen in the seventh. The first pitch of the frame by Hector Neris (L; 3-4) was drilled to deep left by Jacobo to put New Hampshire on top 4-3.

An inning later, with one out, Murphy blasted the first pitch over the right field wall to make it a two-run game. An unearned run in the ninth added insurance for Alan Farina’s fourth save of the year.
