Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 5-6 vs. Reading Fightin' Phils

3B Reegie Corona - 0-4
CF Slade Heathcott 1-4
2B Jose Pirela 0-3, BB

Graham Stoneburner 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB

Three runs in the top of the first inning got Trenton out to a nice lead, but they surrendered two runs in the bottom of the frame and one run in each of the next two innings. Each team would score two runs in one inning after that, and that was enough for the Thunder to get stuck with their 48th loss of the season, pulling them to an even .500. Zach Nuding gets the start for Trenton tonight at 7:05 pm.

Hits were plentiful but scoring was scarce until a three-run seventh inning put the Hammerheads on top for good. The Yankees pushed a run across in the ninth to pull within one, but their rally came up short. Corey Black starts for Tampa today at 12:05 pm.

The game was lost for Charleston after they tied the game in the third inning and allowed a run to the Grasshoppers in the bottom of the fourth. Both bullpens held the score where it was and the RiverDogs got saddled with their 40th loss of the season. Cesar Vargas gets the start for Charleston tonight at 7:00 pm.
