6:00 PM — I have a blog. I forget I have a blog sometimes. So, sorry these are late. But here are lineups and a note on Tyler Austin…
Thunder lineup: Flores LF, Heathcott CF, Pirela 2B, Roller DH, Sanchez RF, Clark 1B, Angelini SS, Stevenson 3B, Gil C, Nuding P
NH lineup: Loewen CF, Burns 3B, Jimenez DH, Glenn RF, Jacobo 1B, Nolan SS, Schimpf 2B, Van Kirk LF, Murphy C, McGuire P
We also got to speak to Austin, who was placed on the disabled list on July 16 with a right wrist issue. Turns out it’s a bone bruise, which he first felt when he got jammed by a Portland pitcher while the Sea Dogs were in town.
“I was hesitant to swing at pitches when we were in New Britain for the simple fact that it was hurting on every swing,” Austin said.
