Four shutouts in the last eight games. Thirteen whitewashes for the season.
What a nice time to literally stop scoring runs. Pittsburgh has moved ahead in the race to be the visitor in the play-in game. I’m perfectly OK with them getting hot and taking this thing. We need change. Change we can believe in. That would bring hope.
As for tonight’s game, the Bravos have bullied the Natspos for the past two seasons, but it doesn’t much matter now. And it’s hard to see that continuing. Oh yeah, Gattis, third on the team in OPS, is out for at least three days with strep throat.
At least BK’s not playing tonight. These guys are: Heyward, Bonifacio, Freeman, Justin, Johnson, LaStella, Simmons, Laird, Minor.
