Ducks Get to Herrera, Hand Him First AA Loss

AKRON, OH – Like Monday night, Tuesday night featured one inning with runs by the Akron RubberDucks, but it was the one inning necessary for the ‘Ducks to secure a 4-2 victory over the Trenton Thunder.

Thunder starting pitcher Ronald Herrera appeared for the first time since his combined no-hitter one week ago, and he made a bid to replicate the feat Tuesday night. The RubberDucks failed to record a hit over the first five innings, with the Thunder offense chipping in a solo home run by Tyler Austin to take a 1-0 lead.

Herrera saw his streak of hitless innings end at 13.1 IP with a leadoff infield single to Eric Stamets to begin the bottom of the 6th, but he was immediately eliminated on a double play the next batter. With two outs and none on, the ‘Ducks rallied against Herrera with a walk, RBI triple, walk and then a three-run home run by Bryson Myles to take a 4-1 lead and chase the 21-year old from the game on his 21st birthday.

Down the stretch, the Thunder never brought the tying run to the plate though they chipped into the lead in the 8th with an RBI groundout from Dustin Fowler which scored Tyler Wade and was the final run in the 4-2 loss.

Over the last 12 ballgames the Thunder pitching staff has allowed four hits or fewer seven times, though each of the last two nights have resulted in losses despite the Thunder outhitting the opposition.

The Thunder and RubberDucks return to action Wednesday night at Canal Park with a scheduled 6:35 p.m. first pitch. Trenton sends LHP Dietrich Enns (3-0, 0.00) to the mound against Akron’s LHP Shawn Morimando (4-0, 2.00) as the Thunder look to snap a two-game skid. Pregame coverage begins at 6:20 p.m. on 91.7 FM and online at www.trentonthunder.com
