Before I start with tonight’s recap, I should mention that Alan Horne and Tim Norton both made their season debuts Saturday night. Both guys missed much (or in Norton’s case all) of last season, so it was exciting to see them back pitching again. Norton struck out 3 in 1 2/3 innings of 1-hit ball for Tampa, while Horne struggled, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits and 4 walks in 3 2/3 innings. The 5 strikeouts were encouraging. I will definitely be tracking their progress, as Horne still has the potential to be a solid starter prospect (I like Norton best as a reliever).
Scranton defeats Norfolk, 11-7
- Eric Hacker got the start, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings of work, with 1 strikeout.

- Doug Bernier was 2 for 4 with a triple.

Tampa falls to Dunedin, 6-4
- Wilkins De La Rosa put together a solid outing, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits and a walk in 5 innings of work, striking out 7 in the process.
- Jesus Montero, catching, was 1 for 4 with a double. His OPS as a catcher this year is .584, compared to 1.385 as a DH (albeit, sample sizes are small). Just food for thought, I will certainly discuss this more.
- Damon Sublett was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Brandon Laird was 1 for 4 with a homer, his 2nd.
- Austin Romine, at DH, was 2 for 4, raising his average to .282. Unlike Montero, Romine hits better as a catcher, with a .706 OPS as a catcher compared to a .599 OPS as a DH.
- Mitch Hilligoss was 4 for 4.
