In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark): Sac fly by Chris Malec gives the Thunder a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first…
McAllister’s in a little trouble here in the third…a Jason Delaney infield single ties the game at one, and he’s been working out of jams quite a bit.
Uploaded a few videos from today and the past few days…check those out. 1-1, T4.
Malec drives in his second run of the day with an RBI single, Trenton up 2-1, B6. Kanekoa Texeira getting loose in the Thunder bullpen.
Jorge Vazquez taken out of the game here in the bottom of the 6th, Kevin Smith pinch-hitting. Second time this series that a player’s been removed for no apparent reason. Fantastic. Can’t imagine they’d put in a lefty to face the lefty Kyle Bloom here…something’s up.
And Smith delivers with a flare to left. Now 3-1, B6.
Six and two third solid innings out of the Z-Mac Attack, but Tex is now heading to the mound…
Uggh. Scary moment in the 7th. Noah Hall just got hit in the head with a pitch…got him in the batting helmet, of course. But still. He was down for a minute and is being attended to by the trainer.
Hall’s fine, he stole second base on the next pitch…
Marcos Vechionacci drove Hall in on an RBI groundout. 4-1, Thunder, heading into T8.
Looking for a true bounce off the SBLI sign in right? Uhhh, don’t.

Thunder Thoughts: It’s Bark in the Park day here at Waterfront Park. Even Thunder staffer Patience Purdy brought in her little shi tzu Charlie, who she could have just as easily named Frank Sinatra thanks to some pretty amazing blue eyes. Can’t say there are too many jobs where you get random visits from dogs every day like I do here with Chase, Derby and now Patience’s dog. And she didn’t even tell me to post this on the blog at all :)
