Opening day

The Portland Beavers opened up the season with Tim Stauffer and he struggled through 5 innings. He allowed 4 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks but was not involved in the decision due to a late inning comeback fueled by new Beaver Jack Cust's homer. Brian Sikorski, Ryan Meaux(the win) and Jon Adkins(the save) combined for 4 shut out innings to close the game and a 6-4 Beavers win. Cf Freddy Guzman, lf Jack Cust and 2b Bobby Hill each had 2 hits.

At Mobile, the Baybears spotted Cesar Carrillo to an early 4 run cushion and he cruised allowing 1 run on 3 hits, though experiencing some command problems walking 4 in 4 innings. Roger Deago picked up the win in relief with 2 solid innings. Lead off man, Kennard Jones, doubled and walked twice and scored 3 runs. 2b Luis Cruz, c George Kottaras and lf Drew Macias each contributed 2 hits in the 5-2 win. Box

Down in Lake Elsinore, the Storm was involved in a good pitching match up as Lancaster's Chico threw 5 hitless innings striking out 7.
