The Erie SeaWolves won their fifth consecutive game and secured another series victory as they took down the New Hampshire Fisher Cats 6-1 on Friday night.

The SeaWolves took the lead against Fisher Cats starter Ricky Tiedemann in the top of the first inning. Andrew Navigato reached on a fielder’s choice and moved to third on a Parker Meadows base hit to left. Quincy Nieporte brought home Navigato on a sacrifice fly to right for a 1-0 lead.

Corey Joyce led off the top of the second and extended his hitting streak to four straight games with a triple to the opposite-field gap. He scored on a Gage Workman sacrifice fly to center for a two-run lead.

Wenceel Perez and Navigato started the third inning with back-to-back singles and the Cats made a change bringing in reliever Juan Nunez to face Meadows. Meadows blasted a three-run home run to center for a 5-0 Erie lead. The home run for Meadows was his 12th, third in the past three games and for the second straight day, was the first batter facing a pitcher making his Double-A debut and he took the pitcher yard.

Erie pulled ahead 6-0 in the top of the fifth. Meadows singled to the gap in left-center for his third hit of the game and he came around to score on a Nieporte double down the left field line.

New Hampshire’s lone run came in the bottom of the ninth to break up the Erie shutout bid. Sebastian Espino singled with one out against Yaya Chentouf. Will Robertson doubled Espino to third and he scored on a Davis Schneider groundout. Chentouf walked the next hitter and struck out Orelvis Martinez to end the game.

Reese Olson (5-5) was magnificent, earning his first win since June 18. He faced the minimum through three innings and the only hit he allowed was a single to left from Schneider in the fourth. Following the single, Olson retired the final eight batters he faced. He walked one and struck out 10 batters, matching his career-high with six innings of work. In two starts against the Fisher Cats this season, Olson has struck out 21 batters in 10.2 innings. It was also his third double-digit strikeout performance of the season.

J.T. Hintzen and Elvis Alvarado each worked perfect innings in relief of Olson. Alvarado struck out the side in the eighth.

Tiedemann (0-1) took the loss allowing four runs, three earned, on four hits with no walks and two strikeouts in two-plus innings.
