Minor action: 4/9

In the absence of action in Cleveland, here's a roundup of today's minor league action.  Today featured the first day of full action for Cleveland's affiliates.

Buffalo 8
Ottawa 3

Buffalo finally got their season started.  Adam Miller got the nod and wasn't sharp, but did manage to make it through 6 innings (6IP,10H,3ER,2BB,2K).  Lara, Kopolve, and Sikorski were perfect in 3 innings of relief, logging 3 strikeouts.  Hector Luna (playing 2B) went deep and stole a base.  Francisco, Rivas, Ginter, and Snyder also logged multi-hit games.

Akron 6
Altoona 1

Akron was also making their first appearance of the season, with Lofgren faring better than Miller in his debut (5IP,4H,1ER,1BB,6K).  Ness, Jensen Lewis, and Buzachero pitched 4 scoreless innings of relief with 1BB and 6K.  Brian Barton (2-4,HR,3RBI) and Rodney Choy Foo (4-4,HR,3R,2RBI) provided the bulk of the offense.  Trevor Crowe got off to a rough start (0-5,3K).

Kinston 1
Wilmington 2

Kinston came up with the only losing effort of the evening.  Taiwanese import Sung-Wei Tseng recorded a loss in his debut, but didn't perform too badly (5IP,4H,2ER,1BB,3K).  Wes Hodges hit a solo homerun for the only Kinston offense.

Lake County 14
Greensboro 8

Lake County brought their bats (aided by terrible defense) to Greensboro.  Matt Whitney, Nick Weglarz, and Jared Goedert (twice) all went deep in the game.  For both Whitney and Weglarz these were their 2nd HRs in the opening 3 games.  For Goedert, drafted in the 9th round last year as a 3B, it was his 2nd and 3rd of the early going.  Lots of hits throughouto the lineup, Matt McBride leaing the way with a 4-4 effort.  Hector Rondon, a 19-year old out of Venezuela got roughed up for 7 runs in 5 innings, but did manage to strike out 7 in the process.

Overall, a pretty nice night of action out of Cleveland's kids.
