***Update: the first game has been postponed, and now will be part of a Saturday doubleheader.***
It’s a rare good old-fashioned double-header. Let’s play two!
Last night’s game was a little frustrating, and a little unlucky. Both Miggy and Victor hit line drive rockets right at a glove, and got runners doubled off (Fingers maybe shouldn’t have been, or maybe he was trying to steal 3rd?), and JD Martinez missed a 2-run homer by no more than 2 inches.
Today we play two, and get a lucky draw in the first game, our old “friend” Mr. Pelfrey. Hopefully in the 2nd game we can eat up Danish.
McCann needed 5 stitches and is on the 10-day DL. Hopefully Hicks picks up where he left off.
Today’s Game 1 Lineup:
- Jose Iglesias, SS
- Alex Avila, 1B
- Victor Martinez, DH
- JD Martinez, RF
- Justin Upton, LF
- Nick Castellanos, 3B
- Tyler Collins, CF
- John Hicks, C
- Andrew Romine, 2B
Pitching: Buck Farmer vs Mike Pelfrey
2nd game: Matthew Boyd vs Tyler Danish.
Brad plays it a little different, giving Miggy and Ian the first game off instead of the 2nd. I’m guessing we’ll have no JD in the 2nd.
