Pregame notes - Game 131

On the mound: RHP Scottie Allen (1-0, 0.73) vs. RHP Matt Barnes (5-9, 4.41)

In the standings: The Thunder dropped a game last night, falling to just 2.5 games ahead of New Hampshire in the race for the final EL East playoff spot. Portland is 4 back. Here's what Tony said about that before the game:

Williams CF
Flores DH
G. Sanchez C
Roller 1B
Angelini SS
Gamel LF
Y. Sanchez RF
Stevenson 3B
Corona 2B

Hissey LF
Marrero SS
Cecchini 3B
Linares RF
Almanzar DH
Shaw 1B
Spring C
Wilkerson CF
Dent 2B

NOTES: The Thunder get to face another top Red Sox prospect tonight in Matt Barnes. Barnes was Baseball America's third-ranked Boston prospect to start the season, he has a well-regarded fastball and curveball. The numbers this season aren't great though, as he is just 5-9 with a 4.41 ERA for the Sea Dogs. Tony's take:
