Action from Friday:
News and Notes:
- Jed Lowrie makes his Astros debut and outfielder J.D. Martinez returns home.
- Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the Marlins' clubhouse this season.
- As a Brewers fan and Cardinal (the team, not the actual bird) hater this makes me feel good and brings joy to my heart.
- The Cubs spoiled the defending World Series Champs home opener... I can't say I'm too upset about that.
- news and notes from mlb.com, including fill in Willie Harris, Devin "you-won't-like-me-when-I'm-angry" Mesoraco, a restful day for Zach Cozart (I wonder if he got to take in the sights on his day off), and the slightly injured Brandon Phillips (his new contract should help make him feel better).
The Brewers continue their series against the team that left Milwaukee for Atlanta in 1966. Shaun Marcum (1-0) looks to move to 2-0 on the year as he takes on Mike Minor (0-1) and the Braves in a game that is set to get underway at 6:10 p.m. CDT.
In St. Louis the Cardinals and Cubs continue their series in game two of a three game set at 12:05 p.m. CDT. Lance Lynn (1-0) takes the hill for the Cards and is opposed by Chris Volstad (0-0), who is looking for his first win as a Cub.
Pittsburgh looks to get their offense back on track against the Giants after being one hit in Friday's game. Charlie Morton (0-0) is scheduled to make his first MLB start of the year. Morton will take on Barry Zito (1-0) in a game scheduled to get under way at 8:05 p.m. CDT.
Sorry for the abbreviated post... a combination of school and work has me absolutely swamped this weekend.
