The New Hampshire Fisher Cats defeated the Reading Fightin Phils, 12-4, on Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Reading got home runs from Maikel Franco, Anthony Hewitt and Kelly Dugan, but it was too little to late, as the Fisher Cats cushion was too great to overcome.

The series continues Friday night in Baseballtown.
