Game 136 - Postgame notes

Final Score: Trenton 9, New Britain 8, 12 innings (check the gamer here)

What went right: The Thunder didn't get a ton of hits (nine) for a team that scored nine runs, but they came at the right time. Obviously Sanchez's walk-off (alas, wasn't able to get the video) was huge, but there was also a big home run from Kyle Roller in the first, a two-run triple from Ramon Flores, and a game-tying, extra-innings single from Ben Gamel. All below:

What went wrong: Five errors, including two by Danny Burawa in the eighth inning, when he gave up two runs to tie the game. Here is what Burawa said on Twitter after the comeback win:

Notes: Jose Gil was called up to Scranton before the game. Also, Hideki Matsui threw out the first pitch.
