In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark): Not exactly a whole lot to write about just yet…scoreless through two.

Hmmm, I should have mentioned that Kyle Anson will be allowed to resume throwing on Saturday.  Seems he’ll be back shortly after that.

McAllister is out after five innings: 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Eric Wordekemper in for the sixth…

Trenton scored their two runs in the fifth on an RBI single by Justin Snyder and a sac fly by Austin Krum.  Reading got one in the sixth after a Dominic Brown triple…Brian Stavisky grounded out to drive him in.

Chance Chapman in after six decent innings out of Yohan Flande.  Flande had a no-hitter into the 5th, but ultimately end up with the line of: 6 ip, 4 h, 2 r, 2 er, 2 bb, 5 k

Matt Cusick breaks it open with a bases loaded, bases clearing double down the right field line off of Mike Zagurski.  5-1, Thunder, heading into T8.

Great stat courtesy of John Nalbone…this would be McAllister’s first win since June 5th.  More than two months.

Eric Wordekemper with two and a third solid innings of relief, Wilkins Arias now in…

Another thing from pre-game I forgot to mention…Paul Bush goes back into the rotation…no one will be called up to fill the spot in the starting five.  I spoke to Bush briefly, and he said he’ll be on a relatively small pitch count.

Final Score: 5-1, Thunder

Thunder Thoughts: Some of the visiting players are walking out to such gems as “Genie In A Bottle” by Christina Aguilera and “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears.  Good.  Good for them.

Special thanks to Tuffy Gosewich for sending a foul ball up here.  The hole in the wall will be a nice memento from his efforts.

Can anyone explain why the UFC wanted Phil Baroni back?  The guy is a clown and is only 13-11.  No need for him.

Game 117: Pre-Game Notes

August 13, 2009

6:00 PM — Sounds like Wilkin de la Rosa may be lost for the year…

4:40 — The Phillies have released Francisco Butto, who used to pitch for the Thunder.  Butto, who was in uniform with Reading last night, was 1-1 with a 1.96 ERA in 16 games.

4:25 — I made an appearance on The Final Word radio show last night…you may check out that rambling disaster of a performance I gave here.  I’m somewhere around the 75:00 mark.

4:15 PM — Just interviewed Domonic Brown — yes Domonic, not Dominic — of the R-Phils.  That goes into the Around the EL queue. 

Also, and yes this is old news…but Wilkin de la Rosa is on the DL with an elbow issue, and Richie Robnett is on with a hamstring issue.  Francisco Santana, an outfielder, was called up from Staten Island.

Trenton won yesterday, by the way, 3-2.

I was in the big leagues, scoring features with Phil Hughes and Randy Ruiz.  Also spoke to Brett Cecil for Ruiz.  Stay tuned for that.

3:45 PM — I have a bunch of questions to answer in the game thread from the other day and some e-mails to get to as well…for now, though, here are the lineups:
