Series in Review - Thunder vs. Portland
Game 2: PPD
Game 3: Trenton 3, Portland 1
Game 4: Portland 2, Trenton 1
Key to the series: Besides rain, I'd say the Thunder won this set with some really nice pitching from Jeremy Bleich and D.J. Mitchell. Bleich put together his second fantastic start of the season, and Mitchell one-hit the Sea Dogs over five innings for his first Double-a win.
Honorable mention: Damon Sublett's home run in the 11th inning in Game 1 was obviously huge, and the stellar relief work from Wilkin De La Rosa gave the Thunder time to rally.
Notes: Brandon Laird hit his first home run of the season, over the Maine Monster at Hadlock Field. ... The Thunder are now 7-3 and lead the EL East by a game.
