Jase Bowen belted a pair of home runs as Bradenton (1-1) routed Dunedin, 12-4.  Bowen connected with two on in the first and one on in the eighth, for five RBIs.  Po-Yu Chen started his season well.  He gave up a hit and a walk in the first, leading to one run, but retired the side in order the next three innings.  Darvin Garcia had a rough outing, giving up four runs in his second inning without retiring a batter, mainly due to walks.  Carlos Lomeli, last year’s 17th round pick out of St. Mary’s College, made his first pro appearance with the bases loaded and nobody out.  He walked in Garcia’s fourth run, but then got out of the inning.  Lomeli finished with three scoreless and hitless innings, with six strikeouts.  Luis Peralta fanned three in a scoreless ninth.  Juan Jerez added his first full-season home run and drove in three overall.  Tsung-Che Cheng reached base three times on a walk, a single and a double.  He scored three runs and stole two bases.  Rodolfo Nolasco and Jacob Gonzalez each had two hits.
