Well, the bad news is it appears we can’t beat the Rays. The good news is at least we will get to see the kids try.
What more could one ask for?
Here are tonight’s lineups. Travis leads off, Grichuk bats cleanup, and Ureña gets the start at shortstop. I am happy to report that Jansen will be catching for his BFF Ryan Borucki.
