Pre-Game Notes: For those interested in my special brand of babbling idiocy, I’m tentatively scheduled to do a pre-game interview with Josh Landsburg on the Thunder’s radio broadcast on WBUD.
Tony Franklin told me before the game that he hadn’t heard anything in terms of whether there would be a corresponding move in regards to Ian Kennedy being placed on the DL. All the usual suspects: Hall, Jackson and Melancon are all still here, and I don’t anticipate anything just yet.

In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark): 3-1, Thunder through two.
Hacker’s OUT after four. He threw a lot of pitches, but I can’t imagine he’s near 100. No idea, guys. Kroenke in.
After Kroenke gave up a missile to tie the game at 3, he went an inning and was replaced by Eric Wordekemper. Clearly, this is the game where the guys kept in moth balls in some sort of bullpen storage closet will be unearthed for use.
Wordy gave up a bomb to dead center, now it’s 4-3, New Hampshire. It’s almost like this was his fourth appearance in 23 days or something.
P.J. ties it up at four with an RBI single in the 6th.
Great throw by Edwar Gonzalez and great tag by P.J. Pilittere to keep this game at 4-4 in the 7th…
Anthony Claggett in to pitch the 8th, and I would assume the 9th.
Ryan Patterson with a fan-freaking-tastic play in center field to rob Pilittere of at least two runs on a gapper to left center. In full stride, he laid out and made a fantastic diving catch.
Tied at four going into the tenth. Geez.
Bo Hall now pitching for the Thunder.
Through 10 and its tied. I’m heading home. It’s 10:35 PM, and I’ve been up waaaaaaay too long. I won’t be at the ballpark tomorrow, but I’ll throw up something on the ol’ blog…
Final Score: 5-4, New Hampshire in 11.
Post-Game Notes: Hacker was in the high 80’s on the gun. He threw approximately 84 pitches.
Thunder Thoughts: Reggie Jackson in attendance again…
I’ll have photos and maybe a video or two at some point, but tonight’s just one of those nights where anything that could have sucked for me has. Accomplished a grand total of zilch before the game. Handled that well. Was pleased.
