Buchanan leads Fightin Phils past Richmond
David Buchanan pitched into the ninth inning to help lift Reading over Richmond, 4-1, on Monday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Buchanan pitched 8.1 innings of one-run baseball, striking out five and scattering five hits. The win was the the fifth of the season for the righty.
Reading was paced offensively by a pair of long balls. Anthony Hewitt ripped a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Albert Cartwright followed him up with a solo shot in the fifth.
The Fightins will continue their series with the Flying Squirrels on Tuesday night in Baseballtown.
