This date in Kernels history – April 19, 2008 – Trevor Reckling

This is my 8th season (2005-present) working as the stadium operations guy here with the Cedar Rapids Kernels. I will be reminiscing the best performances by the Kernels during my tenure to add to my This Date in Kernels Alumni History features this year.

On April 19, 2008, Trevor Reckling struck out five batters in five innings of work while allowing one run, three hits and a pair of walks  as the Kernels defeated the South Bend Silverhawks 2-1.

Trevor Reckling posted a 10-7 record with a 3.37 E.R.A. with one complete game in 26 starts for Cedar Rapids in 2008. Reckling struck out 128 batters in 152 1/3 innings of work and was selected to play in the Midwest League All-Star game. Cedar Rapids finished the season with a 72-66 record under manager Keith Johnson. The Kernels topped Clinton in the first round of the Midwest League Playoffs before falling to Burlington in the semifinals.

Trevor Reckling was selected to play in the 2009 Futures Game for Team USA. Reckling posted a 4-7 record with a 3.73 E.R.A. for the Arkansas Travelers (AA) in 2011 striking out 63 batters in 99 innings of work. He was recently sent from extended spring training to Inland Empire (Hi-A) to start the 2012 season.
