broke a scoreless tie with a solo home run to deep right field in the seventh inning to lead your Thunder to a 1-0 victory over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Monday night at ARM & HAMMER Park.
After Domingo German
and Shane Dawson
dueled their way to a scoreless game through six innings, Ford drove a first pitch fastball off of Luis Santos
over the wall in right-center for the only run of the game.
German earned a no-decision despite throwing 6.1 shutout innings, allowing four hits and three walks. Nestor Cortes
, Matt Wotherspoon
and Cale Coshow
held New Hampshire to just two baserunners across the final eight outs of the game as Coshow earned his third save of the season.
