Notes

Dick is back: Alex Dickerson left Monday’s game after fouling a pitch off his kneecap. Surprisingly, he’s right back in the lineup.

Longo still out: Evan Longoria sat Monday’s game due to a glute strain. He’s sitting again on Tuesday, though he is available off the bench.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
