Cam Embler led the Patriots’ 11-hit attack with a double, two singles and five runs batted in. Alan Watson singled twice, scored three times and knocked in two.
Right-hander Weston Phillips pitched into the fifth inning and received credit for his first win of the season. Justin Mace shut out the Jackets the rest of the way.
