Camarena Lowers His ERA to 1.83

TRENTON, NJ – Daniel Camarena matched a career-high with eight innings of shutout baseball to lead the Thunder to a 5-1 victory in front of 5,983 fans on Friday night at ARM & HAMMER Park.

With the 5,893 fans in attendance, the Thunder franchise stands just 4,608 fans shy of 9 million in franchise history. Read more here.

Dustin Fowler started the Thunder offense with an RBI single in the third inning against Josh Zeid. Fowler drove in Juan Silva and the Thunder nearly had a second run on the play, however, Cito Culver was thrown out at home on a throw from RF Maikis De La Cruz.

The Thunder offense found some power in the fourth inning when Sebastian Valle cranked a two-run home run off of Zeid. Valle’s home run was his first in 94 at-bats with the Thunder and gave the team a 3-0 advantage.

Trenton knocked the B-Mets starter from the game in the sixth inning when Juan Silva walked and Michael O’Neill singled with two out. Cito Culver greeted reliever Tim Peterson with a two-run double to right-center to take a 5-0 advantage.

The five runs of support was plenty for Camarena who lowered his season ERA to a tidy 1.83. Eight innings tied a career-high for Camarena as he allowed only four singles on Friday night and struck out three. The B-Mets earned their only run in the ninth inning when Matt Oberste singled home Phillip Evans in the ninth against Caleb Smith.

Your Thunder continue their homestand on Saturday night at 7pm against the Binghamton Mets. LHP Dietrich Enns will start for the Thunder, RHP Casey Delgado will go for Binghamton. Saturday night features post-game fireworks, presented by ARM & HAMMER, set to music from the great Elton John. Tickets are available by phone at 609-394-3300 or online at TrentonThunder.com.
