Aeros Even up the Thunder

Former Yankees prospect Bronson Sardinha gave his old organization some pay back last night as he enjoyed a 4-hit, 4 RBI in Akron's 13-10 win over the Trenton Thunder. The victory tied the Eastern League series at a game apiece.

Sardinha's four hits included a home run as the Aeros built a 13-6 lead. The Thunder rallied with four runs in the ninth, but fell short. Christian Garcia was put on the hot seat, making his first post season start, and he failed miserably. Garcia, who missed a good chunk of the last two seasons, left after four innings and 6-1 deficit.

The Thunder rallied to tie the game at 6-6, but the bullpen imploded in the eighth inning when the Aeros put seven runs on the board. Kevin Whelan was tagged with the loss after allowing four runs in just one-third of an inning.

Austin Jackson, Reegie Corona, and Colin Curtis led the Thunder with two RBI each.

The Times of Trenton has more.
