Andrelton Simmons continues his hot start, though the Hillcats couldn't muster much offense in this one. Cory Rasmus started the game by striking out the first 8 hitters he faced, and 9 of the first 10, but then he lost steam, alllowing 4 earned runs before he was lifted in the 5th. Chris Masters, who came into Spring Training in the best shape of his life, made his season debut, stranding his 1 inherited runner and tossing 2.2 scoreless innings.

Rome 3, Augusta 5

  • M. Lipka SS 1-4, RBI, .174 AVG

  • T. Hess 3 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 1.59 ERA

Edward Salcedo stole his third base of the short season, but he also made his second error, a throwing error that led to a run scoring. The runner advanced to second on a Carlos Perez balk then scored on a triple. Perez was shaky, allowing a pair of unearned runs in the third and back to back homers in the fifth. Tyler Hess was great in relief, allowing just an unearned run over 3 innings.
