What’s going to happen this evening with Adrian Houser? Is he going to be an opener for Freddy Peralta? Will he and Peralta form what amounts to a tandem? Will Houser throw a complete game shut out?
Bringing tandems into major league baseball would be a cutting edge tactic, while utilization of the opener constitutes the continuation of an already successful cutting edge approach. Whatever the answer, it will be interesting to find out.
As mentioned, Houser will get the start. His counterpart on the other side will be Stephen Strasburg who recently became the fastest player to achieve 1500 strikeouts. Today the two pitchers will face off against the following lineups:
First pitch will be 6:40 CT. The game can be heard on WTMJ and watched on Fox Sports Wisconsin.
