One more game in the House of Horrors. JA Happ has been tasked with preventing the sweep. We will see if he is immune from the Curse of the Trop.

I was hoping Josh Donaldson would be back by now, but it sounds like he may start with a rehab game in Buffalo on Friday:

Here are today's lineups. Smoak has been bumped up to second, which I'm a fan of. He's being pitched around a lot so maybe this will help. Devon Travis gets a day off, so Urshela will play 3rd.
