By Trenton Thunder / Trenton Thunder | May 11, 2014 12:07 AM

The Thunder and Reading Fightin Phils were suspended by rain in the bottom of the 13th inning with the score tied 3-3 before a sell-out crowd at ARM & HAMMER Park last night.

The Thunder's Peter O'Brien broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth inning with a two-run homer. Reading tied the game in the fifth inning, scoring a pair of runs on three hits against Thunder starter Caleb Cotham.

The Thunder regained the lead in the sixth without the benefit of a hit. Gary Sanchez reached on a throwing error by Reading shortstop Edgar Duran. Reading starter Mike Nesseth then issued walks to Tyler Austin and Taylor Dugas to load the bases with two out. Colton Murray came on in relief of Nesseth and surrendered a bases loaded walk to Ali Castillo that put the Thunder back ahead, 3-2.

Reading solved Thunder reliever Tyler Webb for a run in the seventh on a walk and a pair of singles.
The game remained tied at three as each bullpen held the opposition scoreless until rain suspended the game prior the bottom of the 13th.
