It’s hard to blame this one on Rick Porcello. He was crusing along but a pair of errors in the fourth inning resulted in four unearned runs and the end result was the young right hander took his first loss. Still, he gave up just four hits without a walk and he struck out four in five innings in the 7-3 loss.
Louis Ott had two hits and he drove in two of Lakeland’s three runs. Cale Iorg had a team high three hits including a double.
The Rick Porcello era has begun. Last year’s first round draft pick gave up just one hit and two walks with three strikeouts in five shutout innings in the Flying Tigers 4-1 win. Freddy Dolsi struck out the side, but he gave up the lone run of the game to Tampa.
Brennan Boesch doubled and drove in two runs in the win. Louis Ott singled, drew a walk and scored twice.
The big story in this game was when Louis Ott was hit in the seventh, there was a bench clearing brawl. Nobody got hurt but it made the local news. The Lugnuts pitcher was ejected as was Ott.
That overshadowed a solid pitching performance by Casey Fien. He gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and he struck out five in five innings of relief. The win pushed his record to 2-0 on the season.
Scott Sizemore was the hitting star in the 4-2 win. He went two for four with a triple, a homerun, two RBIs and two runs.
Brenna Boesch had a big day at the plate in the White Caps 7-4 win over the Dragons. He doubled, drove in three runs and scored. Louis Ott went one for two with a homerun, two RBIs and two runs while Audy Ciriaco went two for three with a double and two runs.

Jonah Nickerson picked up the win with five mediocre innings. He gave up three runs on three hits and three walks with five strikeouts and the win improved his record to 2-2.
The White Caps couldn’t put a single run on the board and a great start by Christopher Cody was wasted in the 1-0 loss. Cody gave up on unearned run on two hits with six strikeouts in seven innings and the loss is his first of the season.
Louis Ott was the hitting star, if you can have one in a shutout. He went two for four with a double.
Christopher Cody has been a man on fire for West Michigan lateley. He gave up just one run on six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in seven innings of work and the win improved his record to 2-0. The eighth round draft pick in 2006, Cody has now just given up one earned run in 26 2/3 innings and he’s struck out 28. This is one of those guys who doesn’t throw really well and until starts facing guys in Double A, we really won’t know if he’s for real. Those number are pretty amazing though and he’s a left hander, which makes it even better.
Jeramy Laster went one for four with a homerun, two RBIs and two runs. Gorkys Hernandez scored twice and Louis Ott finished with three hits, a run and an RBI in the 8-2 win.
