Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Daily coverage of the minor leagues on Fish Stripes returns as Opening Day commenced for New Orleans, Jacksonville, Jupiter, and Greensboro.

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 2-1 vs. Colorado Springs Sky Sox

Full Box Score

Kyle Jensen, LF: 2-for-3, 2 R, HR, BB
Rob Brantly, C: 0-for-4, 2 SO

Brian Flynn, SP: 6.0 IP, 2 H, BB, 5 SO

Kyle Jensen put the Zephyrs on the board early with a solo shot in the second inning - a lead which Brian Flynn held for six steady innings. Arquimedes Caminero struck out three batters in two solid innings of work, save for a triple that later scored on a sacrifice. Justin Bour later doubled in Jensen, allowing Chris Hatcher to pitch for a save.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
W 3-1 vs. Huntsville Stars

Full Box Score

Alfredo Silverio, LF: 2-for-4, R, SO
Austin Nola, SS: 1-for-3, BB, SO

Anthony DeSclafani, SP: 6.0 IP, 2 H, R, ER, 3 BB, 7 SO
Nick Wittgren, RP: 1.2 IP

The Suns collected ten singles yesterday, which proved sufficient to secure the Opening Day win. Anthony DeSclafani struck out an impressive seven batters, while Grant Dayton and Nick Wittgren pitched effectively in relief.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
L 1-5 vs. Fort Myers Miracle

Full Box Score

Austin Barnes, C: 0-for-3, BB

Trevor Williams, SP: 0.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER
Chipper Smith, RP: 5.0 IP, 2 H, BB, 7 SO

Trevor William's first start in high Class A could not have gone much worse. He allowed his first two batters to reach, before getting hit in the bicep by a hard line drive. The team wisely removed him from the game. Chipper Smith came in and gave Jupiter five excellent innings in relief, but the Hammerheads offense failed to capitalize in critical moments.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
L 3-8 vs. Hickory Crawdads

Full Box Score

Avery Romero, 2B: 1-for-4, R, BB
Chad Wallach, C: 0-for-4, SO

Max Garner, SP: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, ER, BB, SO

Greensboro took an early lead on an Austin Dean homer, but the bullpen collapsed in the sixth inning. Hickory finished the night with eight runs scored on 14 hits. It was also a sloppily played defensive game, with a combined five errors allowed between the two teams.
