Breaking! Madison Square Garden will be used as a polling site for this year’s election. However voters will be removed from the building if they refuse to (1) wear a mask, (2) socially distance or (3) chant “Sell The Team.”
We haven’t forgiven the Astros for not finishing the job in last year’s World Series. They had two chances to seal the deal and refused to cheat just one more time. Anyway, the Asterisks host their in-state rivals, the Rangers on Thursday. Lance Lynn (4-1, ERA 1.93) goes for Texas. The nine-year vet has a career record of 102-69 and has never had a losing season. Lost his last start, but hung tough for six innings against the Dodgers, who scored three runs. Zack Grienke (2-0, ERA 2.68) takes his turn for Houston. Long-ball issues led to a pair of subpar starts, allowing six runs over his last 11 innings after limiting the opposition to only three runs in his previous 26 innings. Houston was 14-6 at home prior to Wednesday night’s game. We’ll go light. Play 10 units on the Astros.
Phantastic! Zack Wheeler scattered three hits over 6 ²/₃ innings, Jay Bruce took Max Scherzer deep and Philly blanked the Nats 3-0. Down -518 johnkruks.
