  • I know it’s KC, but having Jed at 3rd really hurts…….
    Hope he’ll get better with practice

  • Severe storms moving into KC. We need paps to be quick and good to preserve this 4-3 lead. He might have 30 minutes at best.

  • Game, 4-3. Beck gets his 2nd win since AS break.
    Dusty Two-Sacks with 3 RBI.
