Jonathan Jones paced a 13-hit attack with three and Ryan Schimpf clouted his 11th homer of the season to lead surging New Hampshire to a 10-2 Eastern League thumping of Bowie before 6,845 fans at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on Tuesday night.
Starter and winning pitcher Aaron Sanchez (2-4) allowed five hits, two runs and two walks on 84 pitches, 50 for strikes. He whiffed seven batters. John Anderson relieved Sanchez for three hitless innings, allowing one walk with four strikeouts. Arik Sikula mopped up the ninth frame, striking out the side. New Hampshire pitching accounted for 14. They had 37 strikeouts over the weekend in a three-game road sweep of Altoona.
New Hampshire erased an 2-0 deficit with six runs in the third inning. Jones singled to start the rally and rumbled home on a one-out triple by Berti. Schimpf doubled home Berti to tie the game and, after a wild pitch, Gimenez plated Schimpf with the go-ahead run on a single to center.
