Today’s Featured Game

NY Mets vs. Atlanta Braves—12:10pm CT TBS

Kyle Wright gets his 2nd start for the Braves, and let’s hope he’ll make it out of the 3rd today. Dansby went 1-3 with 2 runs, as the Braves beat the Mets 7-1, and moved into a winning percentage tie for first place with the Marlins (and no, that will never stop being funny).

Side note: remember when the Braves were on TBS pretty much every day?

Other Games Featuring Former Dores

Cin City vs. De2roit—11:10am CT MLB.TV

Cin City vs. De2roit—2:40pm CT MLB.TV

The Reds are really putting their “we never win unless Sonny Gray is on the mound” strategy to the test with a Sunday twin bill against Carson Fulmer and the De2roit Tigers. If they lose both of today’s games, they will have fully proven their commitment to the plan.

Pittsburgh vs. Chicago Cubs—2:20pm CT MLB.TV

Reynolds had a monster night (2-3, 1 R, 1 BB) to move his batting average to just under 34 of a Mendoza, but it wasn’t enough, as the Cubbies won 4-3.

Texas Rangers vs. San Fransisky Garlic Fries—3:05pm CT MLB.TV

Yaz went hitless last night, but only because the Rangers gave him the full Barry Bonds treatment. Yaz went 0-1, but scored twice and knocked in a run, as he accounted for 4 BBs (one with the bases loaded!), and the Garlic Fries won 7-3.

Crazy Legs Selman got another inning in relief. He gave up a hit and a run, but otherwise K’d the side.

Oakland vs. Seattle—3:10pm CT MLB.TV

Kemp got no ABs, but he did pinch run and score the winning run in the 10th.
