A win today would be a nice exclamation point on a run of high-quality ball. Alas, it ain’t looking good as our heroes trail 4-0 after three. Apologies for the late OT, but the day job interferes.
A win today would be a nice springboard heading into a weekend against the Nats, who look to be the NL’s clear second-best team. And if Harper ever hits again, they could well match the Cubs.
Today’s lineup, with Kemp getting a day off: Inciarte, Aybar, Freddie, Markakis, Garcia, Peterson, Francoeur, Recker, Hernandez.
