Cain Meets Franklin

When spring training games started last week, I wrote a post about how match-ups matter in Arizona, and to not get too excited if your favorite player is ripping a bunch of homers off Class-A pitchers in the late innings of early spring games.

Well, yesterday we had a positive on the other side of the coin: not only did Nick Franklin launch his first tater of the spring, but he hit it off San Francisco Giants No. 1 (or No. 2; hard to say with their enviable rotation) starter Matt Cain.

That’s a dinger for the kid Franklin against a top-shelf MLB starting pitcher. Definitely worthy of a cheer!

I’m unable to imbed video on this blog, but here’s a link to the footage of Franklin’s homer.

Today’s game is interesting: James Paxton makes the start against Texas; I have Paxton inked into the Rainiers starting rotation come April. Hopefully he’ll have a nice outing today.


Hey, it’s March 1st. Opening Day is a month away!
