We are almost there, folks. Just two more games to go at this cursed stadium. A run or several would be good.

At the very least, we will get to watch another player make his major league debut in Anthony Kay, who is a starter who will be starting the game (!). We are rooting for you, Anthony! Make us proud.

Here is today’s lineup. Rowdy bats 3rd, Jonathan Davis gets another start and Reese McGuire will catch for Anthony Kay.

Today's Lineups

Bo Bichette - SS Avisail Garcia - RF
Cavan Biggio - 2B Tommy Pham - DH
Rowdy Tellez - 1B Austin Meadows - LF

Reese McGuire - C Kevin Kiermaier - CF

Will there be a weird defensive lapse today that can only be attributed to the curse of the trop?
