I'll take 2-2 in this series. The doubleheader makes it tough.

That would leave us 2 1/2 back of them with 6 more games head to head. Have to go 4-2 and still short 1/2 game. So no matter how you slice it then we either have to go 5-1 head to head or get help from others. Splitting this certainly doesn't kill us off but man I don't like our chances if we don't make up ground on this homestand.

I was looking at 6-4 in these 10 games. I think our schedule overall is easier than theirs and we'll make up games elsewhere. I hate losing a game to them yesterday (damn Pirates) but I think we split here and win the next 2 series against them.

Unreal Mateo, just unreal. Gold star for the first play of this game.

Another nice play. That looked routine after his first one. Mateo is a stud. Good lord. He single handedly has energized this crowd and team right out of the gate.

Btw, does Baumann tip his pitches? Anyone know if that’s been a thing with him?

If he hits .250 he's such an asset.

Already a called strike on a ball for Gausman. Cedric let HP Ump Manny Gonzalez know he wasn’t happy.

Through 2 batters anyway, Gausman looks like good Gausman today.

Fwiw I follow a guy named Kevin Roth on twitter who is a meteorologist specializing in DFS (i.e. don’t use this pitcher because it might rain) and he says he expects both games to be played today with just a small possibility of a delay.

Not bad for a guy who some on here were killing.

 

He has consistently hit rockets for a few months.
