Portland Sea Dogs: Easy does it for top pitching prospect Barnes
By Kalle Oakes

PORTLAND — Pitching prospects and the ones who do most of their work with the bat and glove exist in different universes.

READING, Pa. - In his Double-A debut back on April 8, Matt Barnes lasted just one inning at Hadlock Field against the Reading Fightin Phils.

To the 22-year-old Barnes, that start feels like it was from another lifetime.

"That was a long time ago," he said Wednesday afternoon, after breezing through the Reading lineup, striking out 10 over six innings in visiting Portland's 2-1 Eastern League victory at sunny FirstEnergy Stadium.
