The Lancaster JetHawks opened up the 2018 season with a 9-7 win over the Modesto Nuts Thursday at the Hangar in Lancaster.

Willie Abreu led the way with a pair of two-run home runs as part of a 13-hit effort for the JetHawks. Heath Holder (1-0) got the win and Reid Humphrey got the save for the JetHawks.

Lancaster (1-0) wasted no time on offense, scoring four times in the first inning. Colton Welker put the JetHawks on the board with an RBI single. Vince Fernandez, Roberto Ramos and Brian Servin each drove in a run in the frame as well.

In the second, the JetHawks went back-to-back for the team’s first two home runs of the season. With one on and one out, Abreu launched the first of his two long balls on the night to right field. Welker followed with a solo shot to left field.
