Pre-game, it was announced that Maness is to have Tommy John surgery.

That’s just great – this is not a season which will go anywhere. They have a lead tonight though.

And that lead didn’t last long – they have no number 1 starter at all. Hope Garcia can regroup.

Hit batter, wild pitch, home run by .179 batter (first home run of year), missed pick-off at first. Like little league.

Yup. One of the FSmidwest guys just wondered out-loud, if Piscotty might have some sight issues? Happend with Pham. He got new contacts, and said he could see MUCH better.
No need to get negative yet. The Cards lead the MLB in runs in the 7th & after….

LAD are havin’ their way with the Phillies…13-4 in the 7th.

Birds win. Miami lost to the Reds, 3-6, too. OK so, things look good tonite..
