Ronnie Mitchell hit an RBI triple in the fourth inning, and then came back with a two-run homer in the fifth to lead the Tri-City ValleyCats to an 8-6 victory over the Connect­icut Tigers Tuesday night in a New York-Penn League game at Dodd Memorial Stadium.

The ValleyCats, who improved to 6-2, did all of their scoring in the fourth and fifth, coming up with four runs each time.

Kyle Westwood allowed just one hit — a single to Austin Green in the third inning — in five innings to record his first win of the season.

After three scoreless innings, Tri-City took a 4-0 lead in the fourth. Dan Gulbransen led off with a ground-rule double, and scored on a throwing error on a sacrifice bunt by Ernesto Genoves.

Mitchell’s triple brought in Genoves, and Mitchell scored on an RBI single by Ryan Dineen, who later scored the fourth run on a sacrifice fly by Anthony Kemp.

Mitchell’s first home run of the season highlighted the four-run fifth, which also included an RBI double by Gulbransen.

The Tigers (2-6) made the score respectable after Kasey Coffman belted a two-run homer in the sixth and Javier Azcona added a three-run shot in the seventh.

The ValleyCats return to Joseph L. Bruno Stadium tonight to take on the Lowell Spinners at 7.
