Crushers 6 Bolts 1

AVON, OH – The ThunderBolts wrapped up a 1-5 road trip Sunday afternoon as they fell to the Lake Erie Crushers 6-1 at All Pro Freight Stadium.

Lake Erie scored their first run in the second inning when Jose Barraza led off with a walk. He moved to second on a balk and to third on a flyout before scoring on Chandler Brock’s single.

The ThunderBolts responded immediately with a run in the top of the third. Larry Balkwill walked and moved up on a Mike Torres double. Balkwill scored on a Jonathan Garcia single.

The Crushers added an insurance run in the fifth. With two outs, they loaded the bases on a hit batter, a single and a walk. Barraza’s single scored Prott to make it 3-1.
