It is one of those unusual 7pm starts for a West Coast game that just never happen. But it is happening. And it is happening with Armando Galarraga and John Ely on the mound.
Ely has been pretty awesome this season. In 4 starts he has 25 strikeouts, 3 walks, and no homers over 25.2 innings. And he hasn’t walked a hitter in his last 3 starts.
Galarraga joined the rotation when the team needed an extra arm and he stayed in the rotation when Max Scherzer struggled and was sent to Toledo. He struckout 5 and allowed 6 baserunners and 1 run against the Red Sox.
