Bad as it was, at least the Erie SeaWolves’ latest loss was determined early.
Trenton, which won with late home runs in the teams’ previous two games, scored early and often against Erie for Thursday’s 11-0 victory at Waterfront Park. The SeaWolves’ worst setback this season extended their road drought to six straight games and left them 25-27 overall.

The sweep left the Thunder 29-22. The New Jersey nine scored their first seven runs off pitcher Zack Segovia, who sought to become Erie’s first six-game winner.
Cody Johnson and Luke Murton hit homers for Trenton. Johnson’s homer was his league-best 14th.
Jordan Lennerton and Bryan Pounds each had two hits for Erie, which plays this weekend at Richmond. It will be the SeaWolves’ only season series in Virginia.
Erie could experience a change to the catchers on its roster.
Thursday saw the Detroit Tigers purchase the contract of Omir Santos from Triple-A Toledo. That means the SeaWolves’ John Murrian or Rob Brantly could be looking at a promotion to the Mud Hens.
