ValleyCats pick up ninth win
TROY Ronnie Mitchell’s two-run single highlighted a four-run third inning, and Kevin Comer pitched four innings of one-hit relief Thursday as the Tri-City ValleyCats beat the Lowell Spinners, 9-4, in a New York-Penn League game at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.
Mitchell’s two-run hit chased Lowell starter Jamie Callahan. James Ramsay — who hit a solo homer in the first inning — and Dan Gulbransen also hit RBI singles in the third inning.
Comer took over from starter Evan Grills, picking up his first save for the 9-2 ValleyCats.
Tri-City hosts Connecticut tonight at 7.
