Today’s Featured Games
Phillies vs. Mets—12:10pm CT ESPN+
There’s no Dores in this house, but with hockey and basketball effectively over for me (but for casual viewing of title games), this game with the hands down best pitching matchup of the day (Nola vs. DeGrom) will definitely be on my TV. If you love pitching—and if you’re a Vanderbilt baseball fan that doesn’t love pitching, what the hell is wrong with you?—this game is for you.
Cin City Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates—12:35pm MLB.TV
It’s Sonny Gray day, so that’s bad news for the Buccos. Reds won 6-2 last night, as Reynolds matched Swanson’s 0-4 effort. Two days in a row of dipping even further below the Mendoza line is not what the new father wants. Casali rode bench, but will likely catch his former and current teammate today.
Other Games Featuring Former Dores

Gnats won game three of this four game series 10-4. Dansby had an 0-4 stinker.

Fries won 4-3. Yaz went 1-4.
San Diego Padres vs. Oakland Athletics—3:10pm CT MLB.TV
A’ won 8-4. Kemp only got in to pinch run. Expect a lot of this nonsense if tuning into A’s games from here on out.
