Playoff Pitching Matchup; Game Preview 9/11/11

Eastern League Playoffs (First round)
New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Yohan Pino)
vs. Reading Phillies (Tyson Brummett) 6:05pm

GAME 4 Fisher Cats vs. RPhils – The Fisher Cats look to wrap things up and advance to the Eastern League finals for the first time since they won it all back in 2004, their inaugural season in Manchester. Yohan Pino toes the rubber for New Hampshire tonight after compiling a 4-8 record in 36 appearances for the Cats. Pino was 2-2 with a 4.00 ERA over his last five starts and faced Reading in a relief appearance back on July 31st when he only allowed 2 hits over 2 1/3 innings. Tyson Brummett starts for Reading after compiling a 5-12 record with a 4.87 ERA between Triple-A Lehigh Valley and Reading. In his last three starts of the regular season Brummett went 1-1 and allowed 10 runs and 22 hits in 18 innings. New Haven (who would eventually become the Fisher Cats) beat Reading in the 1995 and 2000 Eastern League finals.
