A lightning storm was threatening all evening, but it was the Thunder that made a comeback to remember in the ConVal Cal Ripken Minors championship game on Tuesday. The rain held off long enough for the Thunder to pull off a 7-3 win over the Iron Pigs before the skies opened up.

Two runs and a homer by Justin Borges staked the Iron Pigs to a 3-1 lead early, but the Thunder came booming back. A three-run third put them up for good, and the team added four more insurance runs.
