6:56 - Sorry to be so late on this stuff, been talking to a lot of people about a variety of things. As you can see, Matt Cusick is in the lineup for the first time, hitting fifth. With Scranton this year, Cusick was hitting .265 with nine RBIs in 29 games. He had been hitting .365 over his last 10, which makes the demotion a bit of a bummer.

Tony Franklin's pregame audio, in which he discusses the aftermath of last night's loss and post-game lecture, is below. Enjoy.

7:49 -Here's some thrilling video of Matt Cusick's first 2010 Thunder plate appearance, a four-pitch walk.

8:57 - Thunder have opened it thanks to a bunch of infield singles and a three-run bomb from Luis Nunez, who is 3-for-3 tonight after a bad baserunning mistake last night. Josh Harrison did some work for Altoona, clubbing a three-run jack of his own off of Lance Pendleton, who before that had made very few mistakes.

Here's some video of Marcos Vechionacci singling before Nunez's bomb.

It's an 8-4 final here from Waterfront Park as the Thunder complete a series win over the Altoona Curve. Here's some postgame audio from Tony Franklin and Luis Nunez, who went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run. The Nunez audio is the last two files.

Also, here's some video of Tim Norton's debut, and Lance Pendleton dissecting another excellent start. As Mike Ashmore points out, 5-3 with a 3.66 ERA ain't too bad for someone who started the year as a reliever.
