wow...nick senzel's debut with CIN featured an amazing wall climbing HR robbery by kevin pillar...and then senzel getting a HR in his following AB.

i don't think they'll miss matt kemp.

also, NYM/MIL are tied in the 18th inning...longest game (by innings) in miller park history

...MIL wins in the 18th...6 hit night for braun.  boo.

wow...PIT down by 2 in the 13th...win with a walk-off homer in the bottom 13th...

there's been some good extra innings baseball the past couple days.

de la cruz AA debut last night...

5ip 1h 4bb 5k, 1r/er

    And Joe pinch hits for Descalso again today - now 205/277/316 on the year. But no need to put a jumpy-jump in the parking lot during spring training like they did last year for TLS so it balances out.

    Not sure why any of the teams would only have enough talent for one XSL game.

    RIP heyward's bat.

    shout out to bo jackson...that was a clean break.

    it was a swing/miss with no contact so it's doubtful it was a cracked bat.

    wow baez...also, wow rizzo.

    call overturned, but that was a hell of an "almost" play.

    he's thrown so little of his other stuff lately that i can't even guess and sure don't know.

    he's always been fastball-heavy, but it's almost exclusively fastball now.

    he gets movement on a 95-97mph fastball...that's a positive about it if he's gonna continously offer it up.

    schwarber / baez / rizzo / contreras / heyward / almora / descalso / lester / bote

    i guess we're in for 2-20 random games of "pitcher hits 8th" before suddenly deciding that's not a thing anymore...again

    it had to feel good for him to get that standing O at the home ballpark.

    he's still throwing almost nothing but fastballs exclusively, though...wonder what's up with that.
