    It did. I checked the score around 6 p.m. Glad they bounced back for Evil Empire.

    8/5: Let’s play two!

    8/5: Let’s play two!

    Zack Wheeler vs. Jordan Montgomery in the 4:05 p.m. opener in Philly. Yanks are the home team. Seven innings! Then at 7:05 comes the nightcap. Philly sends its ace, Aaron Nola, against TBD.

    8/3: Cole vs. Arrieta

    8/3: Cole vs. Arrieta

    Zach only needed 10 pitches last night. He’s a better closer, in my book, than Chapman.

    8/3: Cole vs. Arrieta

    Judge made last out of 7th so his homer streak likely ends at five games. He went 2-for-4.

    8/3: Cole vs. Arrieta

    Avilan gives up one run in the 8th but fans Harper and Bruce, gets Didi on a grounder.

    8/3: Cole vs. Arrieta

    Meanwhile, Tommy Hunter pounced off the mound to retire Wade on a perfect bunt down the third base line. Then he later fans Judge to end inning number 7.

    8/3: Cole vs. Arrieta

    I had never heard of Kriske until just now. When you stop knowing the roster, old age is creeping in.
