In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark): Eduardo Nunez drives in a run early, with a rocket over the second baseman’s head…1-0, Thunder, B1.
It’s amazing…for all the PFP the Thunder do, the pitchers still make some questionable decisions. Pendleton fielded a grounder pretty cleanly with runners on first and second, and had the runner out at third by a mile…but he rushed a throw to second, pulling Nunez off the bag.
Great job by Pendleton though, getting out of a no outs, bases loaded jam. 1-0, heading into B3.
Looks like Toronto called up Randy Ruiz. I’ll be up at Yankee Stadium tomorrow, so hopefully I get a chance to speak with him. He got a bad rap, but he was a fun guy to cover.
Richie Robnett scores on an errant throw on a stolen base attempt…2-0, Thunder, B4.
Chris Malec with a sac fly in the bottom of the 5th…3-0.
The internet’s been sketchy here…Reading had a sac fly in the top of the 6th and it’s 3-1 in the bottom of the 6th…Six decent frames out of Lance Pendleton, wonder if he gets a seventh.
Grant “Six-Six” Duff now in the game for the Thunder to start the seventh…
Steve Susdorf drives in a run with a single to right…it’s now 3-2, T8…and precariously close to some free baseball taking place.
Tim Kennelly with a deep double to the right field gap, scoring two…4-3, Phillies, T8. So much for free baseball.
Justin Snyder is pinch hitting for Richie Robnett, who has apparently left the game with an injury from a play at second base where he was on the basepaths and neglected to slide. Will try to find out his status after the game.
It’s now 6-3, heading into B9…
Austin Krum with a hard ground ball through the second baseman and…uhhh, then the right fielder. A run scored and it’s now 6-4. Cooper scored the run. Two outs.
Matt Cusick with a single through the right side…6-5, still two outs.
