New Hampshire catcher A.J. Jimenez had three hits and shut down Trenton's running game, throwing out two wannabe-base stealers, in a 5-3 win for the Fisher Cats at Waterfront Park tonight. Behind the dish, Jimenez locked into a rhythm with starter Drew Hutchison, who gave up two runs in the first inning before retiring 13 straight. The Fisher Cats had 10 hits, with Brian Van Kirk collecting the team's only extra-base hit, a double. Hutchison went five innings, yielding three hits, while striking out six with one walk. Ron Uviedo picked up the save for the undefeated Eastern League defending champs.
