Thunder finish road trip 7-1

(Portland, ME) - The Trenton Thunder (31-19) came from behind to win for the third time in four games, beating the Portland Sea Dogs (14-33) 6-4 on a Memorial Day matinee at Hadlock Field. Cody Johnson drove in three runs on a solo homerun and a double to cap a 7-1 roadtrip for the Thunder.

Trailing 3-0 in the top of the fourth, Johnson would once again provide an offensive boost to his Thunder team, smacking a solo homerun off of Sea Dog starter Alex Wilson into the U.S. Cellular Pavilion in right field to get the Thunder on the board, 3-1. It was Johnson's third longball of the series, his fourth of the roadtrip and ninth on the season.

After Austin Romine knocked-in a run on a two-out single in the fifth, the pesky Thunder bats were back at it in the top of the seventh, looking to take their first lead of the game. Trenton would look to Johnson, and the former first-round pick would deliver again. With one out and the bases loaded, Johnson doubled on a fly ball off the right field wall to score two and give Trenton 4-3 lead. Jose Gil followed with a two-run double of his own, this one off of the Maine Monster in left field, to pad the Thunder lead to 6-3.

Trenton would hold on to win 6-4 to cap seven wins in eight contests on the road swing that began last Tuesday in Reading. The Thunder improved to 21-7 in the month of, just two wins shy of the franchise record with one game left.
