Approximately 6:05pm start time according to Roch.  They're allowing re-entry for fans, which seems obvious when you've got a freaking 5-hour delay.  Anyone recall a delay this long?  Crazy.  Hope we have a nice clear window and that Burnes can dominate again!

Would rather see Mullins or Cowser.  Ragans has even splits L/R for his career and actually had reverse splits after getting to KC in the middle of last year when he started pitching well.  If it's a day off for Mullins, fine, but give me Cowser instead.  I'll hear that they don't like his CF defense, but not sure I buy it.

At least it's against a LHP.

Can Cowser's D in CF be worse than Mateo?

It was bad last year, IMO. Can't speak to how good Mateo might be, but they rostered him to use him in CF, so I'm confident he's better than Cowser looked last year. How much better Cowser can play this year I don't think any of us can say without guessing.

You've gotta really want it bad to have stuck around for this game as a fan. Hopefully the Orioles let those with tickets that didn't stay exchange them.

 

And just like that Burnes has a K.

Just about the longest gameday description I have ever seen.  Is Witt that fast that even MLB guys can't get him out quickly in a rundown?

 

Vinnie Pasquantino reaches on a fielder's choice out, pitcher Corbin Burnes to catcher James McCann to third baseman Ramón Urías to pitcher Corbin Burnes to catcher James McCann to first baseman Ryan Mountcastle. Bobby Witt Jr. out at home. Vinnie Pasquantino to 3rd.

Burnes' first inning ERA is astronomical!

I think Burnes went to the plate too soon.

How many times in my life can the Royals hit a fortunate bloop against us. My goodness

He was extremely annoying on that run down.

Gotta get Mateo out of CF. This isn’t working

Mateo misplaying that ball he dove for suggests he was running hard where the ball tends to ricochet in his vision. Players with experience know how to make that play (if they can get to it).

I hate it.

 

You have a fourth outfielder for a reason. Hays could play center and Cowser in left.
