New Hampshire outhomered and, more importantly, outscored the Erie SeaWolves Tuesday night.
The Fisher Cats went deep three times to Erie’s two en route to a 6-4 victory at Jerry Uht Park. The outcome was the opener of the SeaWolves’ six-game homestand against the Eastern League’s upper New England franchises.
The first of three games between the league’s last-place teams left Erie (50-65) with a four-game losing streak in the Western Division. The SeaWolves haven’t won since their franchise-record 17-inning victory over the Fisher Cats (45-70) last Thursday at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.

Tony Plagman drove in two of Erie’s four runs. Plagman hit a solo home run, as did Daniel Fields in his first-ever home game for the SeaWolves.
Fields was called up from Single-A Lakeland (Fla.) during Erie’s previous road trip. The left fielder’s leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning was only his second Double-A hit.
