It's nice to be up in this one 4-1, but it was much more important that Woodruff looked really sharp. If you make the playoffs and can start Burnes and Woodruff to open a series, it puts a lot of pressure on the opposing team.
A little morning baseball for those of us in the central time zone. The Rays have Jalen Beeks serving as their opener today, he hasn’t gone more than 2.0 innings in any previous start this season (lasted a max of 2.1 IP in a relief appearance this year). Lefty, Eric Lauer starts for the Brewers.

I can’t get the Crew on tv without a shit ton of gymnastics, so when I re-upped my XM I got the sports package (for a Buck a month cheaper that it was before, just follow through on cancellation). I can steam on to my echo dots. Great to listen to Bob again.
Rowdy hits a leadoff homer in the 2nd. After that Rays plate 2 runs in the 4th. In the 5th Mccutchen walked with 2 outs and then Urias hit an 0-2 pitch for a 428 foot homer. Brew up 3-2, Lauer still pitching.
