Huntsville Stars (AA) 12-5
Won 11-6 vs Birmingham Barons (CHW) (box / pbp)

Brevard County and Wisconsin had Easter off. Yes, of course it's going to be raining in the Upper Midwest during the week...why did you ask?

Jeff Suppan only gave up 3 hits to Nashville. It was Kanekoa Texeira who the Sounds semi-knocked around. (If you've seen the Royals play any time in the past season, you're familiar with his talents at allowing baserunners.) Speaking of baserunners, Mike McClendon allowed an inherited runner to score. Meanwhile in Huntsville, Dan Merklinger is going against the grain in recent Brewers org pitching by only throwing 49 of 89 pitches for strikes.

Zack Greinke's rehab start and other points of interest under the jump.
