Smokies 4-23-14

Full Box Score

This one was over almost immediately as the Smokies exploded for eight runs in the first en route to a 9-1 win.  Corey Black enjoyed the support, but he didn’t need it as he flirted with a no hitter in picking up the win.  He actually had a no hitter, but was lifted after six because of pitch count.
