Thunder Win Fifth Straight Series!

Another large crowd witnessed a ninth inning comeback by the Thunder (20-17) who scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to defeat the Binghamton Mets (13-21) 3-2 to take three games out of the four game set.

Through eight innings of play Binghamton pitchers strong armed the Thunder to no runs on three hits and the Mets held a 2-0 lead.

But that all changed in the bottom of the ninth when Jose Gil and Melky Mesa led off the inning with  back to back doubles. That cut the Mets lead to 2-1. A Jose Pirela sacrifice moved Mesa to third then Ray Kruml grounded out followed by a Addison Maruszak walk.

With runners at the corners and two outs Austin Krum lined the first offering by Mets pitcher Erik Turgeon of the wall in right field scoring both Mesa and Maruszak and securing the 3-2 victory.

The Thunder are off monday before opening a three game set on Tuesday against the Erie Seawolves .
