Thunder Rattle Bowie in Road-Trip Opener

BOWIE, MD – Monday’s Independence Day game against the Bowie Baysox ended with fireworks for all in attendance, and it began with fireworks three pitches into the game with a solo HR off the bat of Tyler Wade as part of a 7-2 Thunder win at Prince George’s Stadium.

The offense started early against Baysox starting pitcher, Matthew Grimes, as he made his Double-A debut. The righty had allowed 13 earned runs in 80.2 innings (1.45 ERA) to begin his season with High-A Frederick before the Thunder struck for a leadoff homer and two more runs in the second inning.

Leading off the second inning, Mark Payton roped a groundball single into right field on the first pitch he saw. Two batters later he was taking off for second base when Lane Adams delivered a double down to the left field corner to make it a 2-1 Thunder lead. Dante Bichette Jr. followed by poking a single through a hole on the right side to make it 3-1.

After a 43-minute rain delay from 8:02 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., the Baysox scored an unearned run off Cale Coshow in the bottom of the 5th inning. Coshow had entered to replace starting pitcher Chance Adams who did not receive a win for the first time in his four Double-A starts. Adams allowed a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning to Julio Borbon to tie the game, but then he recorded 12 straight outs without allowing another hit. After 65 pitches, the rains came and he was not able to continue on the night.

After the unearned run, the game was 3-2 in favor of the Thunder and that would be the final run of the night for the Baysox. The Thunder offense was not finished however, as they piled-on four more runs in the top of the sixth inning to stretch it to a 7-2 advantage.

Thunder pitching allowed a home run on the second pitch of the night, and did not allow another earned run the rest of the way among Adams (4.0 IP), Coshow (3.0 IP) and Matt Wotherspoon (2.0 IP).

The Thunder and Baysox return to action in Game 2 of their four-game series Tuesday night at Prince George’s Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. with pregame coverage beginning at 6:50 p.m. on 91.3 FM and online at www.trentonthunder.com.
