Fiorito Clutch in 4-3 Thunder Win

 Dan Fiorito’s three-run triple in the bottom of the eighth inning boosted the Thunder to a 4-3 victory over the RubberDucks on Tuesday night at ARM & HAMMER Park.

Trailing 3-1, the Thunder loaded the bases with one out against reliever Francisco Valera. Shawn Armstrong entered and struck out Yeral Sanchez before Fiorito lined an 0-1 offering into the right field corner to score all three baserunners.

Brandon Pinder earned the victory with two scoreless innings of relief, including two strikeouts.

Bryan Mitchell took a no-decision in his return to the Thunder rotation, allowing just one run on four hits and one walk over five innings; he struck out six. RubberDuck starter Joe Colon also earned a no-decision despite allowing just one run over six innings.
