That was a ridiculous catch by Denorfia, Lambo got totally robbed. Have to tip your cap on that one, he made a hell of a play.

Another line shot the opposite way by Lambo, this one goes for a double.

Starlin Castro with a dinker up the middle that Walker can't do anything with. He has a .388 BABIP so far. I'd have taken the over with how his series has gone.

I'm not sure how Locke has seven K's because this has been some ugly pitching.

I feel like there was a game last year against the Brewers (or maybe even Cubs) where he had a no-hitter into the 6th or something but was painfully bad all game. Like, 6 or 7 walks during the process and a HBP or two.

He's strange to figure, for sure.

Doubles by Harrison and Polanco chase Kyle Kendrick. Polanco still on 2nd, 1 out, Walker coming to the plate to face the World's Most Expensive Middle Reliever.

I'm surprised they didn't bring in a lefty to face Walker and then Alvarez.

This is going to be an interesting bullpen afternoon for both teams.

If they get to the 9 spot, you would have to figure we will see Cutch.

Polanco seems to be turning into a guy who can take over a game offensively. He seems to be involved in every game changing ralley we have.

Polanco goes from down 0-2, then works a full count, then gets the RBI single. Great at bat!

He's a tall, lanky hitter with natural holes in his swing. Once everything clicks, though, he's going to explode.

I like the breakout potential between him and Marte (even though Marte is already pretty solid in his own right).
