Mitchell Fans 12 in 2-0 Thunder Shutout Win

AKRON, OH – Bryan Mitchell needed offense, but Tyler Austin’s two-run single in the first inning was more than enough on a night where Mitchell blew away a dozen Akron RubberDucks hitters in a 2-0 win.On a night where rain consumed the final five innings of play at Canal Park, pitching was the story for both teams. The two teams combined for just two runs on ten hits, including Bryan Mitchell’s performance in which he established a new career-high with 12 strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. After allowing eight earned runs in 8.0 inning in his first two starts of the season, Mitchell came out to throw six shutout frames while scattering four hits and walking two.

The only runs of the game came in the top of the first inning thanks to a two-out rally. With the bases empty and two outs after a pair of flyouts by Mason Williams and Ben Gamel, Rob Segedin drew a walk and was followed by a double from Kyle Roller. Austin then laced a single to left-centerfield and neither team would score again the rest of the way.

Diego Moreno pitched a perfect 8th and 9th inning for his second save of the season, and secured the Thunder pitching staff their first shutout of the season.

Tuesday’s game features Jeremy Bleich (1-1, 9.00) for Trenton against RHP Cody Anderson (1-1, 3.75). First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. with the Trenton Thunder pre-game show beginning at 6:20 p.m. on 91.3 FM WTSR or online atwww.trentonthunder.com.
