April 7 In Peoria History

The highlight for April 7 comes from Opening Day 2017. Just three years ago that Opening Day lineup for Chris Swauger (his first game as Chiefs manager) has already produced three Major Leaguers with a handful of other players in Double-A or Triple-A and on the verge of MLB debuts. Tommy Edman led off the game for the Chiefs and with one out, 18-year old Dylan Carlson launched his first home run of the season for a 1–0 lead. Two batters later, Andrew Knizner collected his first hit of the season and Brian O’Keefe singled as well but the Chiefs didn’t add on.
