The game was scoreless through the first four innings before the Patriots plated four runs in the top of the fifth to take the lead. Oswaldo Cabrera (19) clubbed an opposite field three-run home run that pushed the Patriots ahead before Isiah Gilliam added a two-out RBI single later in the frame.

Bowie’s lone run came in the bottom of the fifth on a Terrin Vavra RBI single.

Somerset starter Randy Vasquez (W, 1-1) earned his first Double-A win with six innings of one-run ball. The No. 20 prospect in the New York Yankees organization (MLB.com) allowed only four hits and struck out seven over his six innings of work.
