After having a pretty good home stand (yes, 5-5, but think about the fact they played the two best teams in the NL and a team that is playing good ball since it fired its manager). But they were fairly well shut-down on get-away day vs. Cards and then they were shut-out on a night when Chris Russin was, been saving this one for a while, just a bit outside.
So in order to stop the 2 game slide and get back over .500 on the road they turn to team ace, Kyle Kendrick. No, wait, I mean the rotations worst member. Darn! Well, to be fair, he threw 7 strong last time out vs. the Fish but go offensive support. So, if he can do that again and get some runs…and runs…they have a pretty good chance against the Fish. At least on paper. Where baseball isn’t played. Except in Rotisserie baseball. Which isn’t baseball. At all.

I am guessing 4 runs wins the game. Question is, since they havn’t scored 4 runs in the past two games combined, can they get there tonight?
