Astros top pitching prospect struggles in QC debut

Bandits not only battled Kane County in their home opener, but also the wind and cold. Starting Pitcher Andrew Thurman threw 4-innings, gave up 5 earned runs, and struck out 3.  Quad Cities scored 4-runs on 11-hits in the loss.

Burlington and Clinton both opened on the road. The Bees beat Beloit 5-1. Clinton falls at Cedar Rapids 4-3.
