Anthony DeSclafani needs to rehab and stuff, and rehab he did. Disco went 3 IP while allowing 3 hits, 3 earned runs, 0 walks, and 2 strikeouts. He only threw 37 pitches, so I'd expect him to be pushed to 50-60 in his next start. JJ "Vacuum" Hoover pitched a scoreless inning with 2 strikeouts. Jesse Winker was 2 for 4 and Scott Schebler had the lone RBI on a double.
Mystery Pitcher is on the mound tonight at 6:35 PM EST.
General Jackson "Strikeout" Stephens wasn't messing around, much like when the Confederates weren't messing around at Manassas Junction, when he pitched 7 scoreless innings while only giving up 5 hits, 0 walk, and striking out 9. Stupid, Alabamians can't hang. I also know that Jackson Stephens is an Alabamian, but he's not playing for Birmingham and can totally hang. Nick Routt locked down a hold (WORTHLESS STAT ALERT) with a scoreless inning of relief where he struck out 2. Tony "Benda" Renda was 2 for 4 with a double and a RBI and Eric "J-E-L-L-O" Jagielo had super similar line without a run scored.
Sal Romano is on the mound at 6:30 PM CT.
Tyler "Trippin' On" Mahle got back up on the horse and rode it, kinda. He pitched 6 innings of 3 run ball, which is a quality start (WORTHLESS STAT ALERT), and allowed 9 hits, 1 walk, and struck out 4. One problem he ran into was the long ball in which he surrendered two. Greg Williams pitched a scoreless inning of relief, and Jacob Ehret picked up the elusive 1 out save. Chad "Build A Wall" Tromp hit a 2 run dinger on a 1 for 3 night, though he had 3 RBI total, 2 runs scored, and a walk. Crazy. Aristides "Heiress Titties" Aquino was 3 for 3 with a double and Ty "Cherry Tree" Washington was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored.

Jesus "Records No Saves" Reyes took the start and was iffy. He pitched 3.2 innings and allowed 6 hits, 3 runs with 2 earned, 1 walk, and struck out zero. Michael "Sully" Sullivan pitched 2 scoreless innings with 3 strikeouts, and Bernardo "Love That Name" Moreta pitched a scoreless 1.2 innings. Brantley "Ribs" Bells was 3 for 4 with a double. Shed "To Keep My Tractor In" Long was 2 for 4 with a RBI, and Luis "Yankee Killer" Gonzalez was 2 for 2 with 2 walks and a double.
Tanner Rainey is gonna make it rain tonight at 7:00 PM EST.
