Cubs @ Reds: Hendricks vs. Roark (Game 39)
CHC: RHP Kyle Hendricks (2-4, 3.19 ERA)
CIN: RHP Tanner Roark (3-1, 3.27 ERA)
First pitch 5:40pmCDT
Hendricks has been fantastic in his last two starts. He followed up his 81-pitch shutout with an eight inning start allowing 1 unearned run. Watch out for Joey Votto, 8-18 against Hendricks but cold to start the year.
Tanner Roark has been pretty good in his first 8 starts of 2019. Last time out he pitched 6 shutout innings allowing three hits and two walks against the A's. He's been solid against the current Cubs, who have a .653 collective OPS in 95 ABs. Kris Bryant is 5-11 with a homer against him.
Sorry for the belated post!

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.

Chatwood is becoming a force in the BP.
