Trenton Thunder Game Recap For 7/26

Press Release - July 26, 2013
Thunder Split Twin Bill With First-Place Mets
(Binghamton, NY) – A three-run first inning propelled Trenton to an opening-game win, but Binghamton’s Richard Lucas drilled a fifth-inning grand slam home run in game two as the Mets earned a doubleheader split with the Thunder Saturday night at NYSEG Stadium.  Trenton won the opener 4-1, while Binghamton took the nightcap 4-1.
The Thunder (54-52) have taken two of the first three in the five-game series from the first-place Mets (65-40) and held Binghamton to just five runs and nine hits in those three contests.
RBI doubles from Andrew Clark and Kyle Roller highlighted the three-run rally in game one’s first inning against Mets starter Erik Goeddel (9-4).  Trenton added an insurance run in the fifth on first-baseman Joe Bonfe’s fielding error.
Rigoberto Arrebato (2-1) reliever spot-starter Jeremy Bleich in the third inning and tossed 2.2 scoreless frames with four strikeouts to earn the win.  Danny Burawa recorded a five-out save (3) including punching out the side in the bottom of the seventh.
In game two, Binghamton starter Greg Peavey allowed a two-out RBI single to Roller in the fourth that snapped a scoreless tie. Mikey O’Brien (5-6) started for the Thunder and faced the minimum through four innings, shutting out the Mets without a hit in that time.
But Binghamton broke through against O’Brien in the fifth with a walk to Allan Dykstra, a single to Rhyne Hughes and a hit-by-pitch to Travis Taijeron loading the bases with none out.  Lucas then slugged his grand slam to left (7) to provide the winning margin.
The fourth of the five-game series is slated for a 7:05 pm first pitch on Saturday night. Thunder left-hander Fred Lewis (0-4, 2.17) will pitch against Mets All-Star right-hander Logan Verrett (9-5, 4.26). Radio coverage on 91.3 FM (WTSR) and also streaming online begins at 6:50 pm.
