Charlotte is under way in Game 1 with McCarthy on the hill, and with Spidale leading off and DHing. Looks like McCarthy retired the side in order in the 1st with one K.

Looks like Brandon got burned by his propensity to give up the occaisional long ball tonight. His peripherals were not McCarthy-esque either.

4.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HRA

I don't know how many times he walked 2 guys in a game last year, but it was not often.

Looks like Charlotte lost 4-1. Borchard Watch: 0-3, 2 Ks. Big Ben Davis: 1-3, batting .385.
In the night-cap Charlotte lost again 4-1, Stewart took the loss. Borchard Watch: 2Ks and a walk, batting .200. Burke played both games at 3B and went 1-6 with an rbi, batting .227.

Birmingham rained out again.

Winston-Salem lost 2-1 though Haigwood pitched well. Lopez lost in relief allowing a run in the 9th.

Kannapolis lost too 7-5 though Berry, Cook and Hernandez all homered.

:whiner: Not a good day.

Looks like McCarthy was fine through 4 innings, then gave up a 3-run dinger in the 5th, and got a quick hook. I'm not discouraged. He still managed to K 5 in only 4.2 IP. Some other positives from Game 1:
- The other Josh Fields threw a scoreless inning in relief of BMac.
- Spidale reached twice and stole 2 bases.
- Anderson also reached twice.

In Game 2, Charlotte committed 4 errors and had only 4 hits. Nonetheless, Smith, Baj, and Walker combined for 3 innings of scoreless relief.

Haigwood's final line: 6 IP, 1 ER (solo HR), 5 H, 0 BB, 5 K. The 'Hogs only run came on a solo shot by Collaro.

In addition to the homers in Kanny, other positives are:
- Ricks tripled and walked.
- Cook reached in all 4 PAs (HR + 3 BB).
- Berry walked in addition to his HR.
- In additon to his HR, Hernandez walked, doubled, and threw out all 3 runners who tried to steal.

Are there any plans to make Ricks a cather? I could have swore that when they drafted him, they announced they wanted him listed as a catcher. I know Kanny has Hernandez. He played 2b at Miami.


Speaking of Miami, if any of you get the ESPN U, great match-up between 2 of the top pitching prospects in the nation, Cesar Carrillo and Andrew Miller go at it as Miami faces North Carolina. Carrillo went to Mt. Carmel. Today @ 3pm, 609 on Direct TV.

They worked him out at catcher during the offseason. No word on whether they made a definitive decision, but it looks like he's going to play the IF for another year. As you implied, Hernandez is going to see the bulk of the action behind the plate for Kanny.
