5-4 Win Completes 5-2 Homestand For Thunder

By Jon Mozes / Trenton Thunder | April 20, 2017 1:56 PM ET

The Thunder took advantage of three New Hampshire errors and Cale Coshow earned his fourth save of the season as the Thunder won 5-4 on Thursday afternoon at ARM & HAMMER Park. With the victory, the Thunder finished their homestand 5-2, winning both series against Portland and New Hampshire.

After the Thunder scored twice in the bottom of the first, thanks in part to an error by left fielder Roemon Fields, Yefry Ramirez turned in a quality start for his second win of the season. Ramirez surrendered a solo home run to Jonathan Davis in the third inning, but, settled in after that; allowing just five hits and two walks in six innings.

The Thunder added to their lead on a wild play in the fourth inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Devyn Bolasky bounced a ball toward the middle and second baseman Tim Lopes threw wide of the second base bag allowing a run to score. In the recovery, New Hampshire third baseman Gunner Heidt threw toward home to try to catch Zack Zehner, though his throw was wild and allowed Billy McKinney to scamper home. Three runs scored on the play to give the Thunder a 5-1 lead at the time.

In the ninth, Cale Coshow allowed two unearned runs before slamming the door on the victory.

Billy McKinney led the Thunder offense with a 3-for-3 effort in which he also earned a walk. Matt Wotherspoon added two shutout innings of relief in the victory.
