Thunder Bats Explode for Season-Best 15 Runs

BOX SCORE (7/26)
PORTLAND, ME – A season-high eight runs in the 6th inning was just the tip of the iceberg in the Trenton Thunder’s 15-4 win over the Portland Sea Dogs Tuesday night.

Before 6,364 fans at Hadlock Field, the Thunder trailed the Sea Dogs 1-0 entering the 5th inning when starter Mike McCarthy handed the ball off to his bullpen. Trenton proceeded to score 15 runs in five innings off Portland relievers in a season-best offensive performance. On a season-high 18 hits and a season-high-matching nine walks plus a hit-by-pitch, Trenton’s offense exploded for 28 baserunners on the night.

Each Thunder batter had a hit for the 5th time in 6 games. As part of the eight-run 6th inning, Dante Bichette Jr. mashed an opposite-field two-run homer and Cito Culver chipped-in a two-run single and a two-run double. The multi-hit inning was the first time since April 2013 when Walter Ibarra collected two hits in a game against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

Lane Adams (3-for-3, 2 BB, 2 SB, R) reached all five times he came to bat, while Kyle Higashioka (1-for-2, 3 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI) and Tyler Wade (3-for-4, BB, 2 R) each reached base four times on the night.

Starting pitcher Chance Adams allowed one hit through the first five innings before allowing a pair of runs on a pair of hits while recording one out in the 6th. He finished with the victory, improving to 6-0, 2.38 ERA with the Thunder and an unblemished 11-0 overall this season.

Trenton and Portland return to action Wednesday at noon for the rubbergame of the three-game series. Trenton has gone 4-2 on the roadtrip as they send LHP Daniel Camarena (7-3, 2.68) to the mound against Portland’s RHP Teddy Stankiewicz (3-7, 5.04). Pregame coverage is set for 11:45 a.m. on 91.3 FM or online at www.trentonthunder.com.
