Patrick Kivlehan and Forrest Wall will remember Memorial Day of 2019.
Kivlehan, playing in his 11th game with New Hampshire since being acquired from the Pittsburgh organization, collected five hits — a solo homer, two doubles and two singles — and four RBIs to lead the Fisher Cats past the Hartford Yard Goats 9-2 in an Eastern League holiday matinee on Monday at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester.
Kivlehan, who has played 132 games in the major leagues, including 115 two seasons ago in Cincinnati, homered in the seventh inning as part of his 5-for-5 day. He is the ninth Fisher Cat ever to record five hits in a game and the first since K.C. Hobson on April 25, 2015.
Wall, meanwhile, went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and three runs scored. He also drove in four runs.
Kivlehan and Wall accounted for nine of the team’s 13 hits.
The Fisher Cats’ two-man wrecking crew made a winner of Hector Perez (4-2), who worked 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander allowed one run on six hits, fanning four and walking two.
New Hampshire will begin a road trip tonight in Harrisburg.
