A second extra-inning game for the Phillies minor league clubs, but a more fortunate result for Reading.

The Fightin’ Phils stayed true to their name as they scored three runs in the ninth, a run in the 12th, and a run in the 13th to beat the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on the road.

Reading’s score card is littered with hits, 14 in all. Left fielder Aaron Brown was the hero though with a ninth inning three-run home run. He finished 3-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored.

Roman Quinn had a hit and a stolen base Friday, but struck out twice.

Jorge Alfaro was also 1-6 with two strike outs, but he drove in a key run for Reading.

Dylan Cozens had another solid night, going 2-6 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI. His three strike outs are of note though.

The pitching was sketchy Friday for Reading. The staff of six pitchers walked a dozen Fisher Cats while striking out just as many through a baker’s dozen worth of innings.

Nick Pevetta (4-3) will take the mound Saturday at 6:05 p.m..
