Kind of a small minor league report with the Rainiers having and off day and Double A Jackson having its double header canceled because of torrential rains and horrible storms .
Perhaps the biggest news of yesterday was that lefthander James Paxton made his professional debut for Class A Clinton. Paxton was a fourth-round pick out of the University of Kentucky in 2010, who delayed signing with the team right up until spring training.
Paxton got the start for Clinton and pitched six innings, allowing four hits with four walks, while striking out six and walking four. Not bad for a professional debut. According to some reports, Paxton was right around 92-93 with his fastball. The LumberKings lost 7-2.
Class A High Desert also lost 14-6, but they did hit three homers in the loss. Vinnie Catricala had a double and a homer, Daniel Carroll hit a homer and Dennis Raben also went deep.
Never miss a local story.
