READING, Pa. -

Austin Wright stuck out a career-high 10 batters on Thursday to lead the Reading Fightin Phils over the New Britain Rock Cats, 3-1.

Wright pitched 7 strong innings, allowing just that one run to earn the victory.

Former Phillies prospect Trevor May carried a shutout into the 7th, but that's when the Fightin Phils broke out. Kelly Dugan ripped a 2-run triple. Sebastian Valle followed with an RBI-double to put the game on ice.

The series will continue on Friday night at 7:05.
