Kyle Lohse vs. Ted Lilly and the Cubs. Lilly, you will recall, pitched pretty well against the Reds last time out. Let’s hope the Reds can touch him up this afternoon.
If you’re interested, MLB.com has an outstanding page full of tributes honoring Jackie Robinson on the 60th anniversary of his debut with some other team. (Yeah, that’s where I stole the header above.)
Talk about Jackie, as well as today’s rubber match (gotta win as many series’ as we can) in today’s game thread.
