Last night was obviously not the the way the Naturals would have liked to start the 2009 season, but it’s still only one game. Every team is going to have bad games throughout the season, but the key is not let those games linger.
5 errors and a rough outing from returning pitcher of the year Dan Cortes could rattle the team’s confidence a bit, but this team seems to realize that in baseball anything can happen on a daily basis and I would expect them to be ready to go again tonight.
Former major leaguer Anthony Lerew, coming back from Tommy John surgery, starts for NWA, while the Naturals hitters will have to face San Antonio’s Will Inman, who led the Texas League in strikeouts last season.
First pitch is 7:05 tonight.
