New Hampshire scored all their runs in the fist inning. Eric Nielsen got it strated with a solo home run. That was followed by two walks and a single by JP Arencibia. A bases loaded walk scored the second run then Jacob Butler doubled in two more. Robert Ray was on the hill for the Cats and gave up an unearned run in the third. Ray loaded the bases in the sixth and a wild pitch brought in one run. Seth Overbey then relieved Ray and gave up a double to tie the game.

Dunedin at Tampa - Postponed
Chi-Hung Cheng was shelled for nine runs, five earned, in 4.1 innings. Yohermyn Chavez and Darin Mastroianni each had three hits and between them scored all four runs. Chavez three hits included a triple and a home run.
Robert Sobolewski has not had the best start to a pro career, he was hitting .182 heading into last night's game. But a 5-5 night does wonders for your average, now up to a more respectible .265. Josh Wells started and pitched five shutout innings but he didn't get the win as the game was tied at one after six innings. Auburn's only run at that point came on a home run by Adam Amar. Auburn took the lead with four runs in the seventh on four hits and two errors. Four more hits in the eighth generated three more runs. In addition to Sobolewski's five hits, Chirs Demons, Amar, Jon DelCampo and Bartolo Nicolas had two hits each.
Chris Holquin gave up one run in five innings to get the win. Shannon Stewart singled to lead off the game and scored on a Tyler Pastornicky single. In the second inning Stewart singled in the winning run. Stewart was 2-2 with a walk. Balbino also had two hits.
The Jays scored a run in the first inning, Luis Fernandez led off with a single and later Jon Talley singled to drive in the first run. The Jays added three in the second with a bit of everything. The three runs came via a hit batter, a passed ball, an rbi single (Arvin Gonzalez), a stolen base, a single (Balbino), an rbi ground out, two stolen bases (Yensy Perez), another hit by pitch, a throwing error, a walk, and a caught stealing. The four runs held up until the Phillies scored two in the seventh. Fernandez and Gonzalez had two hits each.
