Bo Bichette finished a homer shy of the cycle, Harold Ramirez homered with three RBIs, and T. J. Zeuch put together another strong outing as the New Hampshire Fisher Cats opened the weekend with a 4-2 win over the Bowie Baysox on Friday night in Eastern League play at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
Danny Young struck out pinch hitter D’Arby Myers with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth to earn his first save and secure the win for New Hampshire (36-24). Zeuch (4-1) worked the first seven innings, allowing two runs on four hits. Jose Fernandez and Andrew Case worked in relief.
The Fisher Cats took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Cavan Biggio singled, Bichette doubled, and Ramirez knocked in the run with a groundout.
Bowie designated hitter Audry Perez homered in the top of the second inning to tie the game at 1-1. The Baysox took the lead in the top of the sixth when Anthony Santander tripled and scored on a groundout by Ryan Mountcastle.
New Hampshire came back with a run in the bottom of the sixth inning. Bichette tripled off the right field wall and scored on a single by Ramirez to make it 2-2.
The Fisher Cats broke the tie in the bottom of the seventh. Patrick Cantwell walked, moved to second on a single by Gunnar Heidt and to third when Jonathan Davis was hit by a pitch. Biggio’s sacrifice fly proved to be the game-winner.
Ramirez homered in the bottom of the eighth off reliever Michael Kelly (1-4) for an insurance run. Ramirez finished 2-for-4 while Heidt put together a 3-for-4 night.
New Hampshire and Bowie play again on Saturday at 6:35 p.m. at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
