Final Score: 8-5, Thunder.
Post-Game Notes: Austin Jackson has extended his hitting streak to 12 games. In case you’re curious, the Thunder franchise record hitting streak belongs to Freddy Sanchez, who hit in 27 straight in 2002.
Great job by the Red Sox to let him go for next to nothing…
The Thunder’s 15 hits established a new season high. Trenton broke the game open against the B-Mets bullpen, which came into the game with an ERA over five.
By contrast, the Thunder bullpen did well, with Michael Gardner getting the win and David Robertson picking up the save, his second on the year.
The only Thunder player without a hit was Ramiro Pena, who went 0-for-5.
Trenton went 5-2 on the road trip.
Thunder Thoughts: Good to see Carlos Mendoza back in there. He saw his first action since April 5th, scoring a run and getting a hit in the 9th.
