James Paxton had a solid 2012 debut yesterday, striking out 10 in 5.2 innings and walking none with two hits allowed in the 2-1 Jackson Generals win. Shortstop Nick Franklin went 2-for-4 with a RBI and Carter Capps picked up his first save of the season after striking out four in 1.2 innings.

Rich Poythress drove in the other run and third baseman Francisco Martinez was 1-for-2 with a run.

Starter Jeff Marquez got knocked around for seven runs in four innings, but Shawn Kelley handled his “demotion” well, picking up the save after two scoreless innings.
