Thunder righthander Marcos Almanzar yielded just four hits and fanned 13 batters to lead the Albany Thunder over the Albany Athletics by a 4-1 score.   Despite managing just four hits, the A's loaded the bases in the 6th and 7th innings with an opportunity to do damage but Almanzar recorded a strikeout and flyout to end the 6th inning rally, then an inning later induced a fielders choice to end the game.     The Thunder got their runs on a first inning two-run homerun by Evan Arias and another two-run homerun in the fifth inning from Luis Grulbert who finished with two hits. Outside of two homeruns, A's pitchers Nick Bird (5 IP) and Nick Zuba (2 IP) only allowed three hits in the game and no runner past second base.    Greg Sulz plated the only A's run by hitting a sacrifice fly in the third inning to score Austin Lawrence.
