Columbus 5 Toledo 3
It’s amazing what a big story Francisco Cruceta has become. I’m certainly intrigued but you’d think he’s the second coming of Mariano Rivera. Well, in his AAA debut he certainly impressed, even if he may have been tipping his pitches. Striking out the side on 10 pitches is a nice debut. In all he pitched 3 scoreless innings fanning 6. Mike Hollimon also made his season debut and went 1 for 4 with a double. Mike Hessman hit his 6th homer.
