Murphy powers Fightin Phils past Trenton

Murphy power Reading to win over Trenton

READING, Pa. - Jim Murphy homered twice, leading the Reading Fightin Phils past the Trenton Thunder, 6-5, on Wednesday afternoon at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Reading took two of three in the series after snapping its eight-game losing streak with a victory Tuesday.

Murphy kept the Fightins in the game with the two home runs, but it was Maikel Franco's fifth inning RBI-single that proved to be the difference.

Murphy has a team-leading 18 home runs this season.

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez worked out at the stadium in the morning, but did not play for Trenton.

Reading begins a seven-game road trip on Thursday night in Portland.
