Yu Never Know

Opening Day sure is exciting, but man Game Two can be entertaining.

We still have tomorrow’s RoughRiders Opening Day against the Travelers to hype (including the 2013 debut of Cody Buckel), but I couldn’t help but be excited for game two already. By then, the dust has settled. The Opening Day jitters have worn off, and yet it’s still baseball. Something amazing and historic can always happen, and strangely, it so often does. Or nearly does.

Frisco’s starting pitcher for game two of the season? Ryan Feierabend. Interestingly enough, the former big leaguer has pitched the same number of times at Minute Maid Park as Darvish–once (back in 2007). Neither allowed a run.

Well…we will see you Friday in North Little Rock. Thursday and Friday (well, and Saturday too I suppose).  Yu never know what will happen.

Perez’s Perfecto

If you haven’t heard, Martin Perez threw a perfect game yesterday in Frisco’s 1-0, rain-shortened victory over the Arkansas Travelers.

It is the second perfect game in RoughRiders history, and the fifth in the history of the Texas League.

Here are the responses from Perez while talking with last night after the game. The interview was for this story that was on the MiLB home page. Enjoy!

Also, here’s Aaron Goldsmith’s final call of the third out in the fifth inning. Little did everyone know that it would be such a historical moment.
