Chien-Ming Wang 7 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, BB, 2 K, WP - twelve groundouts, four flyouts

The game was scoreless on both sides until the RailRiders broke through in the sixth inning. Runs were at a premium, but Wang's complete game made it stand up.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: W 6-4, W 2-1 (8 innings) vs. New Hampshire Fisher Cats

Game one:

LF Ramon Flores 0-2, 2 BB, SB
2B Jose Pirela 0-2, BB, K, HBP
RF Tyler Austin 1-2, 2 BB, K
C JR Murphy 1-4 - batting .304 this season

Matt Tracy 6 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, BB, 5 K - allowed three home runs
Branden Pinder 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB - zero groundouts, two flyouts

Trenton was out-hit 9-5, but a three-run fifth inning rally helped them get past the Fisher Cats in game one of the doubleheader. Signs of life from Slade Heathcott are promising too!

Game two:

DH Ramon Flores 0-4, 3 K
2B Jose Pirela 0-3, BB
RF Tyler Austin 0-3, BB, K - 9 for his last 33 (.273)
1B Kyle Roller 1-4, K
C Kyle Higashioka 0-1, K - left the game with elbow soreness
CF Slade Heathcott 1-3, BB
SS Ali Castillo 3-4, RBI
3B Casey Stevenson 1-2, BB, K

Tom Kahnle 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB - 14 of 28 pitches for strikes

Caleb Cotham turned in only the third quality start that the Thunder have gotten out of their pitching staff so far this season and Slade Heathcott probably had the best day he's had in Double-A as Trenton swept the Fisher Cats. Jose Ramirez gets his first start of the season today at 7:05 pm.
