Minor League Openers

Every Braves minor league team except for Myrtle Beach lost yesterday -- man, it's been a tough week for Braves teams. Here's a picture by Chip Jett from the Rome home opener. He had this to say about two of our top prospects:

One interesting observation....Johnson and Heyward were together all the time - running, swinging, throwing - everything.

For Myrtle Beach, Tommy Hanson made the opening day start and pitched five no-hit innings issuing only one walk and striking out 13 -- he struck out all but three batters! But in true Braves fashion early this year, the team didn't win, or score any runs, until the 13th inning.
