Postgame Recap - June 10

Final score: Trenton 3,  Binghamton 2

Synopsis: For the second time in eight days, Shane Brown notched a game-winning hit in extra innings, and he didn't even have to pitch this time. Brown's single into left-center in the tenth brought home Zoilo Almonte and Melky Mesa and gave the Thunder a win heading into their first off day after 27 straight games.

Brett Marshall threw six innings of one-run ball with eight strikeouts. His only blemish came when he threw a wild pitch that allowed Matt den Dekker, who had doubled, to trot home from third. His ERA is now a sparkling 2.64. 

Bright spots: The 6-7-8 hitters, Melky Mesa, Brown and Yadil Mujica, went 6 for 13 with two doubles, two RBIs and a run. ... For the ninth time, Marshall allowed two earned runs or fewer in a start. ... Preston Claiborne has allowed one run in his 15 2/3 innings, and none since May 22 at home against Akron. ... Despite an 0-fer, Cody Johnson, in his first game back after a three-day "mental break" hit two balls hard, including a ball to the warning track in the bottom of the tenth.

Flicks to click: Here are two strikeouts from Brett Marshall on Sunday. If you listen closely (read: at all) you can hear me expressing my rage when people stop in front of my lens.

Also, here's the team's highlight reel, if you like seeing the walk-off knock.
