Sulbaran Sparkles as Thunder Trip Sea Dogs

PORTLAND, ME – Early offense off Justin Haley, who battled through an early defensive miscue, kept the Thunder ahead throughout Tuesday’s 6-3 win over the Portland Sea Dogs.

Atop the lineup, Jake Cave and Mason Williams each logged three-hit nights for the Thunder to pace a nine-hit attack. After starting the series a combined 0-for-13 with runners in scoring position, the Thunder finished Tuesday’s game by going 5-for-11, including driving in all six runs with two outs. After just two innings off starting pitcher Justin Haley, who entered with an ERA over 9.00 on the season, Trenton had already mounted a 4-0 lead to allow starting pitcher Miguel Sulbaran to ease into his outing.

Sulbaran’s final line was not indicative of his night as a whole against the Sea Dogs. He scattered three hits through the first five shutout innings in which he needed just 52 pitches. The southpaw ran into trouble in the 6th inning, and allowed three runs to allow a 4-0 dwindle to a 4-3 lead.

However, the Thunder bullpen made that lead stand up, and helped Sulbaran improve to 3-1 on the season. With two scoreless innings from Cesar Vargas and a scoreless 9th inning from Mark Montgomery for his fourth save in four opportunities, the Thunder bullpen has now gone 18.2 innings over the last three games without allowing an earned run.

The Thunder get back to action bright and early, Wednesday with an 11:00 a.m. scheduled first pitch. The starting pitchers in the ballgame are expected to be LHP Eric Wooten (0-1, 7.20) for the Thunder and RHP Luis Diaz (0-3, 5.61) for the Sea Dogs. Coverage begins at 10:45 a.m. on 91.3 FM WTSR, 1490 AM WBCB and online at www.trentonthunder.com.
