Vancouver Canadians Cavan Biggio

Cavan Biggio and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats have advanced to the Eastern League final.


cs_alumni_update_new_logoThe bat of Cavan Biggio is a big reason why the New Hampshire Fisher Cats are off to the Eastern League final. The 2016 Vancouver Canadians second baseman drove in three runs as New Hampshire completed a three-game sweep of the Trenton Thunder with a 5-1 triumph at Arm & Hammer Park.

The two teams had to wait out a nearly four-hour rain delay before getting this one and the wait was worth it for New Hampshire. 2014-2015 C’s infielder Gunnar Heidt and 2011 second baseman Jon Berti got a rally going in the third inning by drawing back-to-back walks with one out and Harold Ramirez kept the inning going with a two-out free pass. Biggio stepped up and saw Heidt score on a wild pitch before drilling a single to right to score Berti and Ramirez for the game’s first three runs.

Trenton answered back with one run in the bottom of the third off Markham, Ontario native Jordan Romano but New Hampshire would score two more runs in the seventh. Berti got a one-out double and scored on a Ramirezbase hit. After Ramirez went to second base on the throw home, he would score on another Biggio base hit to right.

2015-2017 C’s lefthander Travis Bergen got the final three outs of the ninth to send New Hampshire to the Eastern League championship series to face either Akron or Altoona.
