Thunder hit five home runs, still lose to Reading
Starting pitcher Manny Banuelos had one of the worst outings of his career, and Trenton fell to Reading in 12 innings, 8-7, at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Banuelos, who has been maligned by control problems all season long, gave up two home runs to R-Phils slugger Cody Overbeck and issued three walks in his four innings on Monday. The nine hits he allowed were a career worst. He also threw three wild pitches, tying him with Andrew Brackman for third-most in the system.
The series continues tonight at 7 p.m. when Kei Igawa takes the hill.
