Four games scheduled, three games played, and the Brewer kids go 1-1-damnyouminorleaguebaseballdotcom!

Great day in Nashville as Prince Fielder and Jose Capellan propel the Sounds to a 7-3 win:

Highly-touted prospect Prince Fielder led the way with a 2-for-3, three-RBI night that included his first home run of the season, a two-run opposite-field blast to left-center in the bottom of the fifth. The tater continued a career trend for the 20-year-old - he has homered in his first game with all four teams that he has played for in his four-year pro career.

I would like to point out, for what will doubtless be the first of many times, I was present for Fielder's first dinger in Beloit. No lie, dudes.

Capellan left with a minor injury, but it doesn't sound (no pun intended) like it'll cause ongoing problems. Hendrickson starts tomorrow.

The West Virginia (low-A) Power lost big time, and last year's first round pick Mark Rogers was most of the problem.

The Suns didn't waste any time getting started, putting four runs on the board in the bottom of the first inning. Carlos Gomez drove in Wilson Batista with an RBI single to begin the rally. Dante Brinkley crossed the plate later in the inning on Mike Carp's RBI groundout. Jesus Gamero followed Carp with an RBI single and Ryan Coultas capped the inning with an RBI double, giving the Suns a 4-0 lead.

The Manatees were rained out, and I can't find out what happened when the Huntsville Stars took on the Carolina Mudcats.

Be sure to vote in my ultra-relevant poll!

Update [2005-4-8 1:22:30 by Jeff]: Stars lost their opener. Here's the skinny:

Josh Johnson worked 5 1/3 shutout innings and knocked in the game?s only run in Carolina?s 1-0 season opening win over the Stars Thursday night at Five County Stadium in Zebulon, NC. Five Mudcats hurlers combined to blank Huntsville on three hits in the home team?s third straight win on Opening Day. The only run of the game came in the third inning when Carolina second baseman Rex Rundgren led off with an infield single, reached second base on a balk by starting pitcher Dana Eveland, advanced to third base on a passed ball by catcher Vinny Rottino and scored on a Johnson sacrifice fly.
I don't like the sound of Rottino fumbling behind the plate, but I guess that's to be expected. Good outing from Eveland, and Gamble pitched well too. Tomorrow's starter: Dennis Sarfate. Now my poll looks even more ridiculous than I intended it to be. But will I delete it? No, I am too proud.
