The Flying Squirrels finally broke through against the Reading Phillies with the help of a Ryan Cavan home run in the top of the ninth and the help of a little luck in the bottom of the ninth.

Michael Kickham got the start for Richmond and looked to keep the Flying Squirrels from being swept. He went five innings allowing one run, scattering six hits, two walks, and two strikeouts. Brett Bochy worked the sixth and seventh and bounced back from a relatively bad outing last time. In his two innings he would allow only one walk and strikeout two. Daryl Maday got his first win of the year working both the eighth and ninth, allowing only two hits. He got some help in the ninth when a slow roller hit a runner trying to advance to second. Making it two outs with a runner on first, rather than one out with runners on first and third.

David Buchanan got the start for the Reading Phillies and had trouble with his control. In six innings he was lucky to only allow one run on three hits, five walks, and four strikeouts. Jaun Morillo worked one inning worked one inning, walking two and striking out one. Chris Kissock picked up the loss for the R-Phils in his two innings of work. He allowed on run on two hits (one home run).

At the plate Cesar Hernandez, Migeul Abreu, and Tim Kenelly all collected two hits each. Jiwan James drove in the lone run for Reading.

For Richmond, they continued to fail to capitalize with runners in scoring position. Combining the last two nights, they are now 0-for-18 with RISP. At the plate today, Wendell Fairley was the only Flying Squirrel to collect two hits. Gary Brown was 1-for-4 with a double and drove in a run. Ryan Cavan had the big hit for Richmond, collecting his second home run, and technically game-winning at that, of the season.
