Jays' Janssen helps Fisher Cats to win

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Rehabbing Toronto Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen pitched a scoreless first inning, and Scott Copeland following by hurrling eight shutout innings in relief, propelling New Hampshire to a 5-0 win over Binghamton.

Janssen earned the start after being assigned to New Hampshire earlier in the day. He held the Mets to a pair of first-inning singles in what is expected to be the first of a handful of appearances with the Fisher Cats.

Copeland (W; 3-3) took over in the second and dominated for his third straight win. He gave up an infield single to the first batter he faced, but set the tone for the rest of the night by inducing a double play and then an inning-ending groundout from the next two batters.

The Fisher Cats scored for Copeland in the third inning as Andy Fermin belted his first Double-A home run. Jonathan Jones and Jon Berti drove home runs in the fifth to push the lead to 3-0.

The two team are back at it tonight at 6:35 p.m.
