Losers of eight of their last 13 games, the Fisher Cats try to gain some momentum when they head west for their first inter-division games of the season.

They open a three-game series on Tuesday against Akron before moving on to face Erie for another three-game series on Friday.

Marcus Stroman (1-1, 8.10) pitches for the Fisher Cats against Akron right-hander Will Roberts (4-2, 4.08) on Tuesday.

On Sunday, a 7-2 loss to Binghamton at the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium dropped New Hampshire to 28-30.

New Hampshire took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning when Clint Robinson doubled and scored on a single by Adam Loewen.

The Mets responded for five runs in the fifth inning against starting and losing pitcher Sean Nolin (2-1).

Alonzo Harris opened the frame with a single and advanced to second base on a single from Xorge Carrillo.

After a failed sacrifice bunt by Wilfredo Tovar erased Harris as third base, Carrillo scored on a single by Daniel Muno.

Cesar Puello snapped the 1-1 tie with a two-run double, and after an intentional walk to Cory Vaughn, Darrell Ceciliani tripled home two more runs for a 5-1 lead.

In the sixth inning, Robinson launched his fifth homer of the season off starting and winning pitcher Jacob deGrom (2-5).

The Mets (33-24) got the run back in the seventh when Puello belted his eighth season homer to right center field. In the eighth inning for the Mets, Richard Lucas tripled and scored on a wild pitch to complete the scoring.

Loewen extended his hitting streak to six games. He is 8-for-19 (.421) at the plate with two homers during his streak.

Robinson had two of New Hampshire’s six hits in the game. Robinson has hit safely in all three games he’s played since he was taken off the Blue Jays’ 40-man roster. Since Friday he has five hits with two RBIs.

Nolin lasted five innings, losing a minor league game for the first time since Aug. 27, 2011. All five runs were earned as he allowed nine hits, struck out six, and walked one.

It was Law Enforcement Day Sunday and the Fisher Cats honored fallen officer Michael Briggs of the Manchester Police Dept. The players wore camouflage uniforms and proceeds from the game will go to the The Michael Briggs Community Center, home to the Manchester Police Athletic League.
