Series Thread (Games 81-83): June 30 - July 2 @ Royals

Fri 6.30 5p: Miller vs. Marsh
Sat 7.1 4p: TBD vs. Lynch
Sun 7.2 11a: Gonsolin vs. Singer

Two out of three wins vs. Colorado just moved us up into second place in the NL West, two games behind the Diamondbacks. Now we've got three games against the Royals, second-worst team in the American League (while the Giants play the Mets in New York; and the Diamondbacks play the Angels in Anaheim). Could we pull a KC Masterpiece move up even further with this weekend series? (Probably not with that bullpen game slotted for Saturday, but who knows.)

Two solo shots from Mookie give us a 2-0 lead.

Maybe he’s getting ready for Home Run Derby?

Mookie is 4-for-4 with 3 R and 4 RBI (two HR). He was down 0-2 in the ninth and worked a walk!

Game 2: Urias returns to the lineup. We are down 1-0, three batters in, and he hasn’t gotten anyone out yet.

We were down 5-0 through one. But we claw back three runs in the second. 5-3 KC, mid-2
