The A's Nate Novak clubbed a first inning two run homerun then snapped a 5-5 tie with another two run homer in the fifth inning to lead the Albany Athletics to a 7-6 game two victory over the Albany Thunder to tie their best-of-three series at one game apiece.    The A's held a 5-0 lead after Novak's first homer and a three-run homerun by Chris Salamida in the third inning however the Thunder battled back to tie the game on Aniel Peguerro's three-run double in the fourth inning.  Juan Vasquez singled in a run and Louis Grullart drew a bases loaded walk to bring in a run in the big inning.    Novak proceeded to hit his second homer in the fifth inning to make it 7-5 but the Thunder answered with a solo homer by Cesar Matos to close to 7-6.     A's righthander Nick Zuba, who earned the win, struck out five in 3.2 innings of relief and the only hit he gave up was to Matos.    Novak finished with two homers and a single while Greg Sulz singled twice for the A's. Matos finished with a homer and single for the Thunder.
