Big seventh inning spurs ThunderBolts to victory

Bolts 5 Things 2

CRESTWOOD, IL – The ThunderBolts scored five runs in the seventh inning to defeat the Washington Wild Things 5-2 at Standard Bank Stadium Tuesday night.

Washington (19-27) got on the board in the first inning after Carter Bell reached on an error. Sam Mende walked to advance Bell to second and Scott Kalamar’s single made it 1-0.

The ThunderBolts (17-27) got a man to third in the first three innings but were unable to score off of Washington starter Kyle Helisek, who recovered to retire nine in a row from the third through the fifth.

The Wild Things added a two-out run in the fifth. Austin Wobrock walked and stole second base before Bell singled him home to make it 2-0.

Marquis Riley tripled for Windy City with one out in the seventh but was thrown out at the plate on a Max White fielder’s choice. Ransom LaLonde kept the inning alive with a single before back-to-back walks scored the first run. Mike Torres’s infield single tied the score and another bases loaded walk to Jonathan Garcia gave the ThunderBolts their first lead at 3-2. Austin Gallagher followed with a two-run single to extend the lead to 5-2.

Chris DeBoo and James Jones combined on three hitless innings of relief to wrap up the win.

DeBoo (2-1) picked up the win after relieving Zak Wasserman, who allowed just one earned run in six innings. Tim Giel (1-3) allowed all five runs for the loss. Jones secured his sixth save.
