Brandon Laird and Austin Romine just came off of a terrific series against Portland. Combined, the Thunder's Nos. 3 and 4 hitters went 10-for-29 with five doubles, two home runs, eight RBIs and five walks. ... As you can see by his numbers, David Phelps has also been hot of late. He's allowed just seven hits in 11 2/3 innings and has permitted just one walk so far. ... David Adams has cooled off, going just 2-for-12 with two walks against Portland. ... In a strange twist, the Thunder won't see any of the starters they saw against New Hampshire last week.
Brian Jeroloman leads the team with a .348 average, a .444 on-base percentage and a slugging percentage of .543. He also boasts six doubles, tied for second in the Eastern League. ... Eric Thames leads the team in hits, with 19 in 61 at-bats. That's good for a .311 average. ... Thames and Adam Calderone are tied for the team lead with two home runs apiece. ... The Thunder won't face him, but Kyle Drabek has struck out an EL-leading 20 hitters. ... Luis Perez, whom the Thunder will face, is fifth in the league in ERA, with a 1.52 mark.
