Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 10 Syracuse 0
• Lannan (L, 0-1) 2IP, 6H, 5R, 5ER, 2BB, 1K, 0HR
• Arnesen 4IP, 4H, 0R, 3BB, 0K
• Martin ⅔ IP, 5H, 5R, 5ER, 1BB, 0K, 0HR
• Teahen 1-3
• Brown 0-2, 2BB

John Lannan did not make his case for being traded, instead getting pounded for five runs over two innings. Meanwhile, the Syracuse bats were held silent by the Yankees #16 prospect, D.J. Mitchell, and two veteran relievers. Mark Teahen’s fifth-inning single was the sole base hit for the Chiefs, who managed just six total baserunners. Erik Arnesen was solid in relief, throwing four scoreless innings, but Rafael Martin was not, giving up five hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning as the Yankees doubled up their 5-0 lead to the eventual 10-0 final in the 7th. Bryce Harper’s defensive struggles continued with a fielding error and an offline throw that enabled a runner to move up.

Harrisburg 5 Bowie 2
• Rosenbaum (W, 1-0) 6IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, 0BB, 1K, 1HR
• Lehman (SV, 2) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Perez 2-4, R, 3B, BB, RBI
• Kobernus 1-3, R, BB, SB (5)

Danny Rosenbaum turned in a quality start for his first win of the season, allowing just a run on four hits and no walks over six innings. Rehabbing Michael Morse drove in the first three Harrisburg runs on an RBI groundout and a two-run double while Eury Perez led the rest of the lineup with a single, triple, walk and a run scored. Jeff Kobernus had his mutlihit game streak snapped with a mere 1-for-3 effort and his 5th stolen base in four games. Pat Lehman notched his second save with a 1-2-3 ninth, striking out the last two batters he faced. Harrisburg heads up I-95 to visit the New Britain Rockcats for three games before returning to Metro Bank Park on Thursday for the home opener.

Lynchburg 3, Potomac 2
• Oblrychowski (L, 0-1) 5IP, 7H, 3R, 3ER, 3BB, 1K, 1HR
• Wort 2IP, 1H, 0R, 1BB, 1K
• Skelton 2-3, 2RBI
• W. Moore 1-3, R, 2B

Make that three straight losses for Potomac, as the P-Nats could only muster six hits against the Hillcats in a 3-2 loss. Adam Olbrychowski took the loss, giving up three runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings, including a two-run shot in the bottom of the first. Veteran backstop James Skelton paced the offense with a two-out, two-run single in the top of the 2nd and went 2-for-3 overall. Monday is an off day as the P-Nats head south to Myrtle Beach for three games before heading back to Woodbridge for the home opener on Friday night.

Hagerstown 8 West Virginia 6
• Turnbull (ND) 4IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 1K
• Hill (W, 1-0) 4⅓ IP 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 1K
• Meza (SV, 1) ⅔ IP, 0H, 0R, BB, 0K
• Goodwin 2-5, HR, 3RBI, E (2)
• Martinson 1-3, 2R, 2BB, 3SB (5)
• Skole 1-2, R, 2B, 2RBI, 2BB

Kylin Turnbull didn’t fare so well in his pro debut, giving up three runs on five hits with no walks and just one strikeout, but a pair of three-run rallies gave him the no-decision as the Suns held off a late Power surge for an 8-6 victory and a 3-1 series win. Brian Goodwin connected for a three-run shot in the bottom of the third, taking the sting off his second error in four games. Jason Martinson stole third twice and second once to push his total to five steals in four games. Taylor Hill got the win in long relief, tiring in the 9th as West Virginia rallied for two runs before southpaw Christian Meza got the last two outs for his first save of 2012.

  1. Not looking much in to Lannan’s poor start. I wonder if he “overpitched” with an obvious motivation to prove Davey wrong. Also, Goodwin is making a nice first impression in Hagerstown!! I expect him to be promoted by mid-season, provided Michael Taylor moves on from Potomac as well. I don’t expect Goodwin to keep up his 2 ER performance in the opener, but he is definately getting on base. He is clearly dominant, but let him see some more pitching. He might even wind up in Harrisburg before the year is out.
