Game Times and Pitchers for 4/9/12

9 Apr

For the first time all season we do not have a doubleheader on tap.

Billy Bucker (no relation) gets the start for Portland tonight, hoping to get them their first “W” after getting swept in their season-opening series in Reading. Buckner is the only Sea Dog with major league experience.

A couple other guys who have logged some big league innings will be starting for the local clubs. New Hampshire’s Brett Cecil gets the nod against the RPhils, while Doug Mathis will go for the PawSox at McCoy tonight.

Alex Wimmers gets his first start of the year for the Rock Cats. Ranked as the No. 25 prospect in the Twins organization, the first-round pick from Ohio State will be making his AA debut.

Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (Scott Elarton)
