Thunder, Reading open big series
The Thunder are 4 1/2 games behind Reading in the EL East, and a sweep would obviously go a long way to re-establishing themselves as something more than a team that will fight to keep its head above the .500 mark.
To do so, Trenton will have to navigate around a fearsome Reading lineup that houses two of the league's best hitters: Cody Overbeck and Matt Rizzotti. To properly illustrate just how that pair has dominated the EL, here's a list of categories currently led by one or the other:
Home runs - Overbeck (9)
RBIs - Overbeck (24)
Doubles - Rizzotti (13)
Extra-base hits - Rizzotti (18)
Total bases - Rizzotti (63)
