Pigs Preview

The Inaugural Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs season kicked off Thursday evening in Scranton with the Pigs getting blanked 4-0 by the Scranton Wilkes Barre Yankees. The lone Pigs hit came on a single in the 7th inning by CF Brandon Watson. Kei Igawa started for the Yankees and was literally unhittable, leaving in the 7th inning with a no-hitter. Lefthander J.A.

Lehigh Valley – LHP James Happ
Reading – RHP Andrew Carpenter
Clearwater – LHP Joe Savery
Lakewood – RHP Drew Naylor
