Nice to get the win.

The good:

Starting pitching was excellent and Gillies was huge to close it out.

The bad:

Pellerin hits two guys on consecutive pitches. We don’t get a ton of clutch hits.

The bizarre:

TJ pulls a guy in the 7th on a 1-2 count. Outside of an injury you don’t see that very often.

The questionable:

Up a run with nobody out in the 8th and a man on first and we don’t bunt. We promptly hit in to a double play.

Greenies rally from 3-0 down to open the season 1-0. Olthoff gets the win and Gilles the save.

Surprised Aviles didn’t start behind the plate. The starter struck out 10 and didn’t walk anyone. Very impressive start. Ty Johnson had a really good night. Glad to see him back in the lineup.

Aviles has a slight hand injury and was wearing protection on his right hand (pretty sure it's his right hand) when teams were introduced before the opener; so his absence was an injury situation. H. Hastings, who started at catcher, got the game winning RBI, knocking in Glancy from 3rd base in the 6th inning.

I would go check to see when's the last time a Tulane staff had a 16 TO 2 K/BB ratio (AGAIN, THAT'S SIXTEEN STRIKEOUTS, TWO WALKS) but I'd be checking a while.

I love how the pitchers competed* tonight. Seemed like an entirely different group going off of body language and how they responded to adversity.

*another way of saying I liked how they threw lots of strikes and stayed ahead

Cherry Smith tweeted out the news about Aviles just before the start.

1309, that is the key. If we throw strikes, we will surprise a lot of folks. Like the great Skip Bertman said, the key to every game from a pitching standpoint is the first pitch (get ahead in the count). It makes a huge difference. And vice versa from a hitters viewpoint.

I think TJ wanted to give the hitter, #3 in the lineup, a different pitcher/motion to look at. He had just roped a foul ball down the right filed line that was reviewed. As I recall two base runners would have scored if it had been fair. Pellerin came in and got the final strike to end the inning. However, he also threw two pitches high and wide of the plate (right side) before the strike. The next inning he plunked two RH hitters in a row. A real head scratcher.
