Smith to start in Bobcats' home opener

The Bobcats open their home schedule tonight with seven of the next games at Gordon B. Guess Field.

Trey Smith (0-0), a lanky 6-foot-8 right-handed pitcher from Morehead State University, will take the mound for the Bobcats. Owensboro will start Adam Weafer (0-0).

Smith, a 21-year-old London, Ky. native, was 1-5 with the Eagles in his sophomore season this spring with a 9.18 ERA. He walked 30 but struck out 36 in 49 college innings pitched.

Tonight's game starts at 7:05.
