NOTES: Salem will be looking their first series win of the season over Potomac in the morning with Miguel Pena taking the mound. He will be looking to regroup after a 7-hit, 4-inning season opening debut loss last Thursday. After going 0-for-7 in his first two games, third baseman Garin Cecchini is 8-for-12 over his last three games with three stolen bases…Another A.M. start has the Drive looking to make it two-in-a-row over the Hickory Crawdads. Justin Haley struck out six in the season opener, but only lasted 3 2/3 innings after walking 4 and allowing 2 hits…Drake Britton had a rough go of things in his season opening start. Granted it was not all his fault as fielding woes led to 4 unearned runs. Unfortunately one of those woes was of his own doing, plus 2 walks and 5 hits, 3 of which were home runs, did nothing to help his cause either…PawSox starter Allen Webster was efficient in his first outing, a scoreless no decision versus Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Webster needed 85 pitches to get through five innings, allowing 3 walks and 2 hits. The PawSox 5-1 record is tied for best in the International League with Syracuse and Durham.

at Harrisburg Senators – Blake Treinen (2012: 7-7, 4.37 ERA, 92 Ks)
NOTES: Its rise, shine and ball time in Manchester as the Fisher Cats have an early wake-up call with a pre-noon getaway day game. Marcus Walden gets the ball for New Hampshire in the rubber match having notched a loss in his first start of the season. The Fisher Cats then depart on their first road trip with stops in Binghamton and New Britain…The Rock Cats finally got the bats going on Tuesday, plating a season high 9 runs on 12 hits. Trevor May gets his second start of the year. The Twins top ten prospect went five innings in his season debut, allowing only 1 run while walking 3 and allowing 3 hits. Reliever Bobby Lanigan (2-1) picked up the win out of the pen on Tuesday night and has received a decision in each of his three appearances.
