Notes

Panda and Dubi watch: Neither Sandoval nor Dubón seems to be on the team’s good side right now. It’s the former’s first start since Sunday, and the latter’s first start since Tuesday. We’ll see how they do, but each is probably feeling the pressure to perform.

Dickerson in search of a hit: Things have gotten rough for Dickerson, who has slipped below the Mendoza line. Since the Houston series, he’s hitting a mere 2-29 (though he has 6 walks to just 5 strikeouts, which is encouraging).


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
