This date in Kernels history – April 9, 2010 – Fabio Martinez

My 8th home opener (2005-present) is in the books as the Kernels came back from a 6-1 deficit to defeat the Clinton Lumberkings 7-6 tonite at Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Home runs by Frazier Hall and Wendell Soto capped the comeback allowed by 5 1/3 inings of scoreless relief work from the Kernels bullpen. It might take me a bit to get back in the groove to get used to the 14 hour days and pulling into the driveway long after the wife and little guy are asleep. We had pretty decent turnout for the weather and all things considered. It was good to see the Dohrn family at the ballpark (congrats on your Mike Trout bobbleheads) and got to catch up a little with some old friends between the stadium ops duties (hope you had fun Soper and Opie). On to the This Date in Kernels History. Sorry for the delay today. Opening Day always pushes some stuff back a bit. It still isn’t quite midnight so it still counts, right?
