Daniel Rodriguez pitched just three innings and gave up seven runs. His 14.2 scoreless inning streak came to an end quickly in the first and it didn't get much better from there. He walked six batters, gave up a bases loaded triple, and allowed a run to score on a squeeze play. Suffice to say it wasn't a great night for him. The offense was up against the reanimated arm of Francisco Liriano, who appears to be pitching well this season. The Braves mustered just four hits off of him in six innings along with nine strike outs. Each of the three relievers the Indians brought in struck out two as well leaving the strike out total at 15 for the Braves.

In his second game of the season Tommy La Stella wasted no time putting the Hillcats ahead, hitting a two-run homer in the first inning. He sparked the offense all night long reaching base all four time he came to the plate. In two games he has reach base in six out of eight plate appearances leaving his two game OPS at 2.028. That probably won't last. The rest of the Hillcats offense did their thing as well and helped move the team into first place in the Northern Division.
