Postgame Notes - April 16

Final score: Akron 5, Trenton 1

Synopsis: Akron's T.J. House put on a clinic, and the Aeros bullpen held things down for the duration. Trenton managed just two hits and nothing more over six innings against the lefty. The Thunder scratched out their lone run on Rob Segedin's RBI knock in the bottom of the seventh. 

The good: Very little, but Ramon Flores and Kyle Roller each had two hits. Tyler Austin had a pair of outfield assists. Jeremy Bleich and Shaeffer Hall pitched five scoreless innings, upping the bullpen's streak to 25 1/3 shutout frames. 

The bad: This was the first time on the homestand that the Thunder have collected fewer than 10 hits. They'd banged out 58 hits during their five-game winning streak, which was obviously snapped on Tuesday. Also, the Thunder were without Walter Ibarra, who went on the disabled list on Tuesday with  a strained side. 

Trenton committed two errors, though there could easily be a third charged to Ramon Flores, who dropped a ball in center field. Manager Tony Franklin agreed that it should have been an error and not the double it was scored.
