Kid K takes the mound today and will try and prevent the first place Astros from sweeping the series after Mark Clark's 7th inning meltdown last night. He'll also try to find some consistency after a string of good start, bad start in his first four games and lower that 5.89 ERA.
Riggleman changes up the lineup a bit, giving Martinez and Orie the starts today with the night game last night. I mean, it's just one game, what could possibly happen? Blauser is spared a benching despite the the 3-week slump he's currently making us witness. Sammy Sosa's offseason training regiment has paid off well to this point , a nearly 1.000 OPS to this point and now the home runs are coming in bunches.
