MANCHESTER, NH – The Trenton Thunder offense clicked with 18 baserunners Friday night at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, but fell to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats 5-2.
The game was tied 1-1 with two outs in the 5th inning, when New Hampshire scored on four straight hits to open up a 5-1 lead. The runs were all earned and came off Thunder starter, Daniel Camarena. The first run of the night was unearned off the Thunder lefty, before New Hampshire knocked him out of the game. He picked up his third loss of the season as his record drops to 7-3.
Trenton brought the tying run to the plate in the 8th inning after trailing 5-1. Left-hander, Tim Mayza, entered the game and walked the bases loaded on 12 straight pitches before having to face Kyle Higashioka. After getting ahead of Higashioka 0-2, he induced a double play to plate Vince Conde for the second Thunder run of the night, but it left the Thunder still trailing 5-2.
