Lynchburg was manhandled by the Pelicans yesterday. Jarrett Miller's start went inauspiciously, as he allowed four runs in only 3.2 innings. Nate Hyatt had a nice relief outing, walking only one hitter and striking out four in 2.1 innings. Mauricio Cabrera made a bullpen outing that went disastrously, as he didn't record an out and walked three batters and allowed a hit. The 'Cats' bats were mostly silent, but Blake Brown and Levi Hyams each recorded two hits apiece, with Brown doubling once and Hyams twice. Same two teams, same place, same time tonight.
