CRESTWOOD, IL – Ryan Soares had five hits and four RBIs to lead the ThunderBolts to an 8-2 win over the Joliet Slammers at Standard Bank Stadium Friday night.

The Bolts took the lead in the first inning on Soares’s first hit, a single that scored Kyle Robinson who had doubled. They made it 2-0 in the fourth when Soares led off with a double and Max White singled him in.

Joliet tied the score when Grant DeBruin singled to lead off the sixth and Russell Moldenhauer hammered a two-run homer to right.

The ThunderBolts did not let the tie last long. Soares doubled to lead off the bottom of the sixth and Garrett Carey was hit by a pitch. They stood at second and third with two outs when Mike McGuckin flew a double to left field, scoring Soares and Carey and giving the Bolts a 4-2 lead.

They added two more the following inning on a two-run Soares double that scored Robinson and Ryan McIntyre. RBI singles for Robinson and Soares in the eighth sealed the score at 8-2.

Travis Tingle (6-3) allowed two runs in 6.2 innings for the win and Jessie Snodgrass earned his third save, throwing the final 2.1 innings without allowing a hit. Matt Crim (0-1) took the loss, giving up four runs in 5.2 frames.
