  • Danks doubles, but then Peavy strikes out the side. Jeff Marquez scoreless in the first (3 GO/0 FO).

  • Peavy making light work of the Charlotte lineup. 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 SO.

    Marquez gave up a second inning home run to Kotsay, but has been able to otherwise limit the damage against a near full strength Sox lineup.

    And Viciedo made a missed catch error.

  • I assume this is the first look at the Knights' lineup. Looks like they should have a good one for the first time in recent memory. This also probably means the split squad team was the Barons' lineup. I was less impressed with that group.

  • Jordan Danks led off the 4th with his 2nd hit. Then Gartrell and Kroeger went back to back off Peavy. Peavy pitched only 4 innings, but struck out 7 and walked none. Dan Remenowsky struck 2 in a perfect 5th inning. Knights up 3-2. Go figure

  • All the starters for the Sox are out of the game now and have been replaced with what looks like the Dash's lineup.

  • Tyler Flowers took Remenowsky deep. 2 ip, 1 r, 3 k for Dan.

    A minor league scrimmage has broken out. All of the Sox starters got pulled.

  • THE Kyle Shelton took Fredi Dolsi deep, cutting the Knights lead down to one.

  • 4-3 final. Knights win. The Majors Leaguers were trailing when they all left. I don't know if that's a bad sign for them or a good sign for the Knights. Exhibition games are meaningless, but it's nice to get a better idea of what the minor league rosters will look like this year.

  • In reply to DannySantaromita:

    Peavy mentioned that he was working on his cutter that wouldn't cut in the 4th. Sounds like he was pretty un-hittable the 1st 3 innings.

    One of the guys who has impressed me the most this spring is Jordan Danks. He has a very good approach at the plate and is just such a strong defensive outfielder.

    The guy probably won't be an all star, but he'll have a long long career or being an above average outfielder that teams sleep on (Think Mark Kotsay, Aaron Rowand, Mike Cameron, etc).
