Fisher Cats get win on memorable play

Fisher Cats first baseman Gabe Jacobo came up with an unlikely winning hit in the bottom of the eighth inning. With two outs and the game tied, 3-3, Jacobo dropped a single into center field that Brian Goodwin missed on the hop. The ball went all the way to the warning track and Jacobo raced around to third base and then scored when shortstop Jason Martinson’s relay throw to third bounced away.
The win improved the Fisher Cats to 52-48. Relief pitcher Randy Boone worked three scoreless innings to get the win and move his record to 3-0. The Senators (55-48) and Fisher Cats play again tonight at 7:05.
Harrisburg scored three runs in the top of the third to open the scoring. Destin Hood led off with a double to center field and former Fisher Cats catcher Brian Jeroloman drew a walk, as did Goodwin to load the bases with no outs.
