The IronPigs used the long ball to take down the Tides last night.  It was their third straight win.  A two-run shot by Koyie Hill–his first home run as an IronPig–and a three-run blast by Leandro Castro paced the Pigs to a 6-3 victory.  Greg Smith was his usual solid self.  There was a minor adventure with Phillippe Aumont, and a save by Justin De Fratus.  Tyler Henson started a new hit streak with two knocks, and Troy Hanzawa got off the schnide with his first hit of 2014.

The Pigs are back at it early today, with the first “education day” of the season–a 10:35 start.  Our team was 0-5 in morning games last season, but was 11-3 in the 14 before that.  All time, the Pigs are 12-13 in the morning.  Barry Enright is on the mound.
