Notes: The Thunder called up RHP Charley Short from Tampa before the game. Short was 4-1 with a 2.20 ERA in 25 games. The move puts the Thunder's active roster back at 25. It had been basically (notwithstanding the corresponding moves of Graham Stoneburner to Scranton and Scottie Allen up from Tampa and Neil Medchill going straight from the DL to the RailRiders) at 24 since Rigoberto Arrebato went to the DL August 17.
Also, today is the much-loved Bring Your Dog to the Park Day, so if you really want to come to the game but can't find someone to watch your dog, you are in luck!
