Bettis vs. Corbin. Two guys that came into the season with some “realistic” promise, yet both have generally come up short so far. In other words, another entertaining, evenly matched Rox/Snakes game on tap for today. Both bullpens are thin and tired. Hot summer day at 5280. With Bettis pitching, Jake Lamb will no doubt be back in the Snakes starting lineup…..giving them a real two-headed offensive monster in Goldschmidt/Lamb. Rox seem healthy and should counter with an almost “A” lineup, including Wolters. All signs point to another 12-10 type game.
Toronto rolls into Coors next, and I expect more of the same. Offense, offense, offense.
The Rox currently sit 35-39, 7 games short (lagging behind most teams by a couple of games in total games played to date) of the halfway point of the season.
