TRENTON, NJ – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays) fell behind early and never recovered Monday night, losing 6-1 to the Trenton Thunder (Yankees) at ARM & HAMMER Park.
Trenton got on starter Hector Perez (L, 1-2) for two runs in the first on a pair of hits and two walks, then added four more in the third. In that inning, Perez walked three and surrendered three singles as the Fisher Cats trailed 6-1 heading into the fourth.
New Hampshire scored its only run in the third. Vinny Capra singled then Forrest Wall dropped a bunt down the first base line for an infield base hit. After a walk loaded the bases, Capra scored from third on a wild pitch, but the Fisher Cats failed to push any more runs across.

- Kevin Smith singled twice, his third multi-hit game of the season.
- Jonathan Cheshire twirled 3.1 scoreless innings of relief. He scattered three hits and struck out three.
- Danny Young and Kirby Snead each faced the minimum in one inning apiece.
