We’re pivoting to Fisher Cats Nation. The Large Adult Sons from New Hampshire absolutely kicked the piss out of the Trenton Thunder, the Yankees’ Double-A team, and will play in the Eastern League Championship Series. They’ll play either Altoona or Akron.
FINAL: NH 5, TRN 1

When I say the Fisher Cats kicked the ever-loving piss out of Trenton, I really meant it. They won the first game of the series 8-0 on the strength of six shutout innings from T.J. Zeuch. Hector Perez got knocked around a little in the second game, but the bats carried the Fisher Cats to a 10-4 win. They completed the sweep on Friday night with a 5-1 win in which Jordan Romano tossed five-and-two-thirds scoreless frames.
So it was a combination of good pitching and big bats that ultimately allowed New Hampshire to completely murder the Yankees Double-A team. Max Pentecost continued to revive his prospect status with a clutch bomb in the Thursday win. Bo Bichette went 6-for-13 and hasn’t struck out yet and Cavan Biggio went 4-for-10 with seven runs batted in. The biggest offensive catalyst for this time continues to be Harold Ramirez, though, as he went 6-for-11 with three RBIs and a couple stolen bases.
Fuck yeah, the Fisher Cats.
