In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark):  Chris Malec with an RBI double.  P.J. Pilittere breaks out of his slump with a run scoring single, then James Cooper follows with a two-run double down the left field line.  Edwar Gonzalez with a single to left, but Tony Franklin sent Cooper when he probably should have and he was toast at the plate.

4-0, Thunder after one.  Let me repeat that.  4-0, Thunder after one. 

Bleich with 11 pitches through one, Garcia with 29…22 of them for strikes.  Thanks, stats guy Dave!

6-0 through three.  Chris Malec scored after an Erie error, and Marcos Vechionacci doubled home Edwar Gonzalez in the third…

Bleich looking good, but starting to run into some problems in the 4th with rain on the way…

68 pitches, 43 strikes for Bleich.  Unfortunately, five runs on eight hits as well.  He made it through three and two thirds before getting just rocked in the fourth.  A 30 pitch inning.  Oof.

Grant “Six-Six” Duff makes a rare early game appearance here in the fourth.

Wind delay in the fourth.  No expletives being spoken in here at all.

It’s 8:45 and starting to pour.  It’s raining in sheets.  Generally not condusive to baseball.

It’s 6:45 PM and Kanekoa Texeira is in for the 7th…still 6-5.

Max St. Pierre with a long home run to left field to tie the game at six in the 8th.

Austin Krum just got picked off of first base, and appeared to injure a finger on his right hand sliding back into the bag, which he did headfirst.  Vic Valencia waved trainer Tim Lentych over, but Krum walked into the dugout without seeking attention on the field.  No idea as to what Krum’s status is, but whether he plays in Game 2 will speak volumes to that.

Krum’s actually coming out to the field for the 9th inning…

Eric Wordekemper in to pitch the 9th as well…

EXTRA INNINGS.  Awesome.  Everyone wins.  Love me some free baseball.  Oh yeah.  Big fan.  Sweet.  6-6, heading into T10.

Further delaying things is that there’s some sort of apparent issue with the mound.  With Wordekemper on the mound, Tony Franklin came out and the groundscrew was summoned.  That delayed things about two minutes.

Eduardo Nunez ends game one with a walk-off double off the left field wall in the 10th.  7-6 win.
