9:35 central time start. Lucas French on the mound, trying to improve to 3-0. I'll update when anything interesting happens.

So far this year: Deolis Guerra, Chris Colabello, Pedro Florimon (his average is creeping toward .300).

I see De Los Santos is manning LF today. Branching out. 8 innings for French on 106 pitches.

French starts the ninth--hey, I guess he wants out of the Eastern League.

Mine is stalled also. I show a runner on second with one out in the top of 9, NB still leading 3-2.

That was all messed up on their GameDay. French never got out of the 7th. Turpen relieved, wound up with the loss.

Thanks for the corrections. MiLB gameday is the worst.
Too bad for Turpen, though.
