4/9 vs. FW
Last night was a very clean with for the Hawks… a few things that stood out.
Jesse Darrah pitched very confidently… he seemed in control all night, even when the TinCaps got their lone run off him in the first inning. Darrah really settled in during innings two and three. He retired the TinCaps six-up, six-down and the ball never left the infield.
Big Inning: The fourth inning was South Bend’s biggest inning this season as they posted four runs on four hits and eight men came to the plate. Bobby Stone and Roidany Aguila showed off their power, particularly Aguila who hit his to the opposite field.
Great crowd: The crowd last night was terrific. The attendance of 4,033 is the Silver Hawks larges since a crowd of 4,631 watched the Silver Hawks on July 8 of last year. At last year’s home opener on April 11, the paid attendance was 1,627.
We’ll have game notes and an update later.
J.R. Bradley makes his 2012 debut tonight at The Cove.
