Please guys, a win.

Paraphrasing Prince hasn't been working for us, but I'm going to keep trying it.

We did score 5 runs yesterday. That's a step in the right direction. And it was good to see Chad Girodo have a very good introduction to the majors.

J.A. Happ gets his fourth start of the season. He's been very good, 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA in 19 innings. He still seems to go to a full count on too many of the batters, but he's getting guys out, so I won't complain.

Chris Bassitt also makes his fourth start of the season. He is 0-0 with a 2.79 ERA. In 19.1 innings, he's allowed 16 hits 2 home runs, 9 walks with 13 strikeouts.

Martin and Tulo are back in the lineup. No Saunders yet. I'll admit, I'm really not a fan of Carrera batting leadoff, but it is what it is.
