Kernels postponed at Burlington

BURLINGTON - The Kernels game at Community Field in Burlington versus the Bees was postponed due to rain Tuesday.

The game will be made up May 15 as part of a doubleheader in Cedar Rapids. The first game will start at 5:30 p.m.

The Kernels (12-5) have a scheduled off-day Wednesday and will return home Thursday to begin a three-game series against Great Lakes, the Midwest League affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Thursday's game begins at 6:35 p.m.

The Kernels will be home from April 25 through April 30 before hitting the road from May 1-13.

   

Berrios gets win in Kernels debut

BURLINGTON - A lot of 18-year-old guys are trying to find a date for the senior prom these days or worrying about how to pay for college next year.

Not Jose Berrios.

He's already got $1.55 million from the Minnesota Twins and he's pitching in the Class A Midwest League for the Cedar Rapids Kernels. And he can probably get all the dates he wants.

Berrios pitched five innings in his debut for the Kernels Monday night and got the victory in an 8-4 triumph over the Burlington Bees before 727 fans at Community Field.

Berrios, a supplemental first-round pick in 2012 from Puerto Rico, had a little bit of a rocky start in the first two innings when he allowed two runs and five hits, but he found the groove after that and got stronger as the game went along.
