Scuttlebutt in the stands is that Roskam has a muscle injury and is day to day. Won’t be playing tonight at least.

This Riley Smith guy for Minnesota had 5 assists as an outfielder in a game back in February. Also just towered one to the LF wall, Hagge able to corral it.

Palkert seems to have gotten a lot better down the stretch, those who were bagging on him a month ago probably regret it < looks in a mirror >

Liner to Henwood, injures his shoulder diving to tag second base (failed to convert the DP).

And he’s going to stay in the game. Warrior.
