Stat of the day: Micah Johnson has had two hits in each of the season’s first three games

Johnson did not finish 2013 in a positive way, but has come out of the gates on fire for Birmingham. Saturday night’s game was his third straight multi-hit game to start the season. He also stole his first base after swiping 83 last year. So far he is 6-for-13 with a triple, a home run, two walks and three strikeouts.
