Thunder Blank Richmond Behind Coshow

TRENTON, NJ – The Trenton Thunder needed just two runs in support of Cale Coshow to propel the right-hander to his first win of the season, 2-0, before 6,407 jubilant schoolchildren Wednesday morning at ARM & HAMMER Park.

The game traded scoreless innings until the bottom of the 6th when the Thunder used a one-out double by Cito Culver to get the wheels in motion against Richmond starter, Adelberto Mejia. After a groundout by Tyler Wade moved Culver to third base with two outs, Dustin Fowler rolled a single sharply through the right side of the infield to give Trenton the lead.

The following inning, Sebastian Valle was at first base with two outs when Dante Bichette Jr. singled through the middle. Dan Fiorito provided a lift with a two-out RBI double to score Valle and double the Thunder lead.

Mejia pitched well for the Squirrels on the morning. He went 7.1 innings and allowed just six hits while striking out six, but his offense provided no support and the two earned runs were the difference in the ballgame.

Coshow set a new career-high with the seven innings of work with just five hits allowed to lower his season ERA to 3.00. Alex Smith rolled through an effortless 8th inning before Tyler Jones entered for the save in the 9th inning. Jones retired the first two batters he faced before allowing consecutive singles to Hunter Cole and Ryder Jones to bring the winning run to the plate in Carlos Moncrief. A strikeout on a pitch in the dirt retired Moncrief and ended the ballgame.

With the win, the Thunder improve to 21-16 on the season. Meanwhile, Richmond loses a 12th straight game to fall to 10-28 on the season.

The Thunder and Flying Squirrels complete a three-game series Thursday night with a 7:00 p.m. first pitch at ARM & HAMMER Park with post-game fireworks present by the Hyatt Regency Princeton.
