Trenton Thunder Game Recap 5/27

Austin Homer the Difference in 3-1 Win over Reading

READING, PA - Tyler Austin's two-run homer in the top of the seventh gave the Thunder a more comfortable 3-0 lead in a 3-1 win over the Reading Fightin Phils Tuesday night.
In a ballgame that was delayed 59 minutes, the Thunder jumped out to an early 1-0 lead off Reading starting pitcher Severino Gonzalez. Mason Williams stroked a double to left field and Ben Gamel followed with an infield single to set-up first and third with no outs. Rob Segedin, who would later leave the ballgame in the bottom of the fourth inning, grounded into a run-scoring double play to plate Williams.
Austin finished the ballgame 2-for-3 with a walk , but his biggest contribution came in the seventh inning following a Slade Heathcott two-out single. Austin's first home run of the season cleared the wall in left-center field to extend what was a 1-0 lead at the time, but proved to be the winning two runs Tuesday night.
Thunder starting pitcher Matt Tracy made his first start for the Thunder since May 11th vs. Reading, and went 6.2 IP with one run allowed. The St. Louis, Mo. native claimed his fifth Double-A victory of the season after his two most recent outings came in Triple-A with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Tracy has now allowed one run in 13.2 innings against the Fightins this season.
On in relief of Tracy was lefty Tyler Webb who allowed one hit in 2.1 IP and struck out the first four batters he faced. Webb scoreless innings earned him his second save of the season.
The Thunder have won 4-of-5 to begin their road trip and continue their three-game series against the Fightin Phils Wednesday with a 6:35 p.m. first pitch and 6:20 p.m. pre-game show on 91.3 FM and
