Mandy Alvarez hit an inside-the-park two-run homer to break a sixth-inning tie and followed that next inning with a grand slam, leading the Trenton Thunder past the New Hampshire Fisher Cats 8-6 on Monday in New Jersey.
The Fisher Cats, held to five hits and down 8-2 through eight innings, rallied for four runs in the ninth, three coming across on Juan Kelly’s 10th homer of the season. The Fishers brought the tying run to the plate, but could get no closer.
The teams conclude their five-game series tonight at 7 p.m.
