Man, last night’s game was exactly what the doctor ordered after that rough five-game stretch. After being on the wrong side of five-straight, Fernando Tatis Jr. put an emphatic stamp on their victory with his first career grand slam.
Unwritten rules be damned. It was awesome.

The top five of the lineup tonight remain the same as yesterday evening. Wil Myers is back back in right field, taking the place of Josh Naylor. He’ll bat sixth. Jake Cronenworth is in at seventh while newly brought-up catcher Luis Torrens gets his first start of the 2020 season.
