Thunder Bow Again; Judge at .337

TRENTON, NJ -The Erie SeaWolves scored five times over the first four innings and broke a 12-game losing streak with a 6-1 victory over the Thunder on Monday night.

Thunder starter Caleb Smith (L, 1-2) walked five batters before leaving with an injury in the top of the third inning with one out. Smith was charged with four runs, three earned, and the SeaWolves offense accumulated 12 base runners in the first five innings against Thunder pitching.

Erie got big games offensively from DH Dean Green (4-for-5, with a double) and 1B James Robbins (2-for-3, with a double and a run driven in) in the win. The SeaWolves had a hit in seven of their nine innings at the plate.

Aaron Judge continued his sensational campaign with a 3-for-4 effort. Judge is now batting 10-for-20 in his last four games and raised his season batting average to .337 in Monday night’s defeat. He has 13 multi-hit games in his 23 games played this season.

The Thunder offense had plenty of opportunities for offense early in the game when they put at least two runners on base in four of the first five innings of Monday’s game. However, Derek Hankins allowed just one run in five innings against the Thunder in spite of allowing nine baserunners in the outing. The righty entered with a 1-3 record and 4.38 ERA, but collected his second win of the season and lowered his ERA to 3.94.

Trenton and Erie battle in Game 2 of the series Tuesday when RHP Luis Severino (1-1, 2.25) goes to the mound against RHP Chad Green (0-3, 9.19) for the SeaWolves. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. with coverage beginning with the Trenton Thunder Pre-Game Show at 6:40 p.m. on 91.3 FM WTSR and www.trentonthunder.com.
