Thunder pitcher Craig Heyer threw for six innings throwing scoreless ball. Jose Pirela homered for the first time as a member of the Thunder. The Thunder also swept back to back series.The Thunder started off early when Jose Pirela smoked a ball over the Left Field fences to give the Thunder an early one run lead. The homerun was also Pirela’s first homerun in double-A baseball.With a large home attendance of a little over 8,000 looking on in the fifth inning, Pirela got on base again for the Thunder and Bradley Suttle followed with a triple into the right center field gap. The Thunder added an insurance run in the sixth inning when they scored on a bases loaded walk to increase their lead to 3-0.Craig Heyer dominated the Reading Phils allowing only two hits over the six innings he pitched. Heyer (4-2 , 2.74) who easily posted his best performance of the season received fine fielding help as the Thunder provided him with three straight inning ending double plays.Reading whimpered a little when they loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth and scoring a run on single but Josh Schimdt came in to douse the flames and earn his fourth save of the season.Thunder ClapsTrenton opens a five game in four days Memorial day stand on the road in Portland against the Seadogs at Hadlock Field.Manny Banuelos goes to the hill tonight against the Seadogs at 7:00pm Tune-In to 93.1 WTSR-FM for all the action.
