CornBelters Top Beach Bums 11-6 in Opening Night Victory; Billy Horn Records First Win as Manager

Cain, Chirino and Iriart all record multi-hit games

NORMAL, Illinois (May 11, 2018) – The Normal CornBelters wasted no time at all to get the offensive going this season and to give their new manager, Billy Horn, his first victory in an 11-6 win over the Traverse City Beach Bums on Friday (May 11) night in front of 2,856 fans.

“You know getting the first win here as a manager for the first time is special. It means a lot to me and my family, and now we can breathe,” said Manager Billy Horn.

After finishing 9-2 last season for the CornBelters, Scott Sebald was given the opening night start.  The Cincinnati native settled down after giving up a two-out home run in the first and finished the day with six innings pitched, two strikeouts, and only allowing two more runs.

The Normal offensive was constant throughout the whole game and scored in the first three innings. Christ Iriart recorded three doubles and drove in three. His first double came in the bottom half of the first and drove in Nick Cain for the first run of the season to tie the game.  In the third, Justin Fletcher knocked a one-out triple then came around to score after an error from the Traverse City third basemen.
