Kernels raise record to perfect 6-0

The Cedar Rapids Kernels stretched their perfect record to 6-0 to start the 2015 season, topping Beloit 8-4 in front of a Tuesday night crowd of 876 fans at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Even with the perfect record, Kernels Manager Jake Mauer did not feel his team’s performance was exactly perfect, however.

The Kernels were outhit 10-7 by the Snappers and the Cedar Rapids bullpen allowed for some drama at times.

“It wasn’t our best (game), no doubt about it,” the skipper conceded afterward. “That being said, we were able to make pitches when we needed to. They’re not all going to be pretty and a win’s still a win.”
