Porter does well for ValleyCats

Andrew Benintendi’s two-run homer in the third inning Saturday night helped the Lowell Spinners beat the Tri-City ValleyCats 6-5 in a New York-Penn League at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.

Benintendi’s first homer of the season came after Hector Lorenzana had hit a three-run homer off Tri-City starting pitcher Rogelio Armenteros in a four-run second inning.

The ValleyCats came back on the bat of Pat Porter, who doubled and scored a run in the fourth inning, hit a two-run double in the fifth and a two-run home run in the seventh.

The extra-base hits were the first of the year for Porter, and the four runs batted in were his first of the season as well.

The ValleyCats got the tying run to second base in the bottom of the ninth when Drew Ferguson singled and was bunted to second. But Porter and and Kolbey Carpenter struck out.

Elieser Hernandez, who took over for Armenteros in the fifth inning, struck out 10.

The teams play again today at 5.
