The Warthogs went to Kinston over the weekend and swept the Kinston Indians, allowing the Indians to score only two runs the entire series.

Game one saw the Hogs score six runs in the first inning. Ruddy Yan (known as Edwin Yan last season) was 4 for 5. Casey Rogowski and Eric Welsh had two hits each. Relievers Scott Patten, Ryan Meaux and Josh Fields all looked sharp. Hogs won 6-2.

Game two featured the debut of Kris Honel who definately lived up to his reputation. Honel threw six scoreless innings, giving up just 3 hits, striking out 6 and walking 2. Eric Welsh hit his second homer in two games, while John Lackaff had 4 hits and 2 RBI. Hogs won 2 - 0.

Game three, Hogs won 5 - 0, with another great pitching performance by Ryan Wing. He threw 5 innings of shut-out baseball. Eric Storey hit a two-run homer, Mike Spidale had 2 hits and Brian Becker had 2 RBI. Again, strong relief pitching by Kris McWhirter, Ryan Meaux and Josh Fields held the K-Tribe scoreless.

The Warthogs had a day off yesterday and hope to play their home opener tonight when the Lynchburg Hillcats come to town (Pirates). Unfortunately, rain is forecast here for the rest of the week.

By the way, the Warthogs are broadcasting their games on the internet this year. Go to their website, www.warthogs.com and click on the link to listen.

Am I missing something here? Adding it up, I see 3 runs (Lackaff's 2 plus the HR), but it was a 2-0 game?

Thanks for the minor league updates, though :) Good to see Kris pitching well.

Sorry. I just took the info off the Warthogs website. That's how they posted it. The score is correct.
