Thunderbirds soar...blank Dodgers 7-0
The NTX Thunderbirds used great pitching and a relentless attack at the plate to shout out the Dodgers 7-0 Thursday night at McInnish Park.
Brent Smerczynski was dominant on the mound for the Birds, pitching 6 shutout inning while only giving up 2 hits and striking out three. Jon Ward threw a scoreless 7th to finish off the night.
At the plate, John Menth, Smerczynski and Dustin Harrison each had multiple hits on the night. Menth went 3 for 4 while Smerczynski and Harrison added a single and a double each on the night. Other members getting hits on the night include Cliff Brade, who also notched 3 stolen bases, Rob Carroll and Don Massoud who notched his 3rd homerun of the year with a 2-run shot to left in the 6th.
The win improves the Birds season record to 6-4, currently in 2nd place, 2 games back of league leading Modoc who they face next week for a 6:30pm contest at Prestonwood.
