Adams Fans 10, Bullpen Secures Thunder Sweep

TRENTON, NJ – The first seven outs recorded by Chance Adams were strikeouts and the Thunder scored twice in the bottom of the first inning to push them to a 4-1 win over the Bowie Baysox  Wednesday afternoon at ARM & HAMMER Park.

With the win, the magic number to clinch a playoff spot in the Eastern League is five games.

After the Baysox scored in the top of the first, the combo at the top of the order of Tyler Wade and Dustin Fowler combined for a run. Wade hit a ground-ruled double and Fowler drove him in with a single through the middle, later in the frame Mark Payton drove in Fowler with a run-scoring groundout.

Staked to the 2-1 advantage, Adams struck out the side in order in the second inning and struck out the lead off man in the third inning. The 22-year-old right-hander finished his outing after 4.1 innings and matched his career-high with 10 strikeouts.

JP Feyereisen and J.R. Graham finished the Thunder victory with 4.2 scoreless innings combining for six strikeouts. The 16 K’s from the staff on Wednesday afternoon was one shy of the season-high.

Michael O’Neill and Jose Rosario also added run-scoring swings later in the game to aid the Thunder offense. The Thunder had a hit in each of the first six at bats in the game.

The Thunder begin their final road trip of the regular season to Portland and New Hampshire with a four-game set against the Sea Dogs. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pre-game coverage beginning at 6:50pm on 91.3 FM WTSR.
