    Phillies beat the Orioles today, so if we lose, we're back to second in the division.

    I like our chances tonight. I think we've beat up this Chatwood guy up before.

    Good start for McCarthy.

    Kris Bryant getting doubles will happen, but a strikeout and soft contact otherwise. And most importantly, he was throwing strikes. Hope it continues.

    I think Acuna is about to get hot. He's started taking walks and not chasing so many bad pitches the last few games, and had a productive out this time on a hard hit grounder.

    That was a great catch, but I think that one would have been off the top of the wall, don't think it would have been a homer. He caught it before he was at his max height in the air.

    But we're hitting the ball hard tonight, which is a good sign. And so far McCarthy hasn't walked the yard.

    Our outfielders are talented, but other than Markakis, they're kinda dicks with the fake outs.

    Can't really complain there. The 3-2 pitch on the leadoff walk should have been strike 3, but the pitch Schwarber got rung up on was high, so I guess they even out.

    Either way, McCarthy has looked good so far tonight.
