Game 133 - postgame nots

The score: 3-2 Thunder, 10 innings

The good: Mikey O'Brien had an interesting day. The righty gave up just one run over 6.2 innings of work, but he did so giving up nine hits and striking out nine. Also good was Pat Venditte, who threw 1.1 scoreless innings, and Charley Short, who threw a scoreless frame the same day he was promoted from Tampa. Here is Short on how his day went before the game:

I got to the airport at about 7:00 in the morning because I had an 8:30 flight. It got delayed to 9:30 so I was going to miss my connection, so I had to get a completely new flight with a new airline and everything. I had to go through security twice, so it was kind of tough. It was noon flight so I got here at about 2:30, waited for my bags and got the ballpark about 10 minutes to four.

Obviously Ramon Flores' game-winning single in the 10th was "good", but in addition to winning the game it also lifted the Thunder to a respectable 3-for-8 with runners in scoring position, which has been a major issue for the team all season.

The bad: Even with Flores' heroics, it was hardly a banner day for the Thunder at the plate, where they went a combined 8-for-34, which comes out to an average of .235. Even Gary Sanchez's RBI single looked as if it could have been ruled an error if the fielder had made a clean play. Here's a look.

Also, Danny Burawa was fortunate to only give up the tying run in the ninth inning. Here's some video of him walking that run home.

The...whatever: It was Bark at the Park night, so you know. Dogs. Like these guys:
