Another scorcher today. Please remember to stay hydrated if you're at the game. Bring a hat or umbrella as well to stay shaded.

Of the 18 home runs Minor has given up this year, only three have been at home; still high ERA at home, though (5.28). His numbers in nine career day games aren't too promising, either (1-4, 6.50 ERA, .317 opp. BA), but let's hope he can produce a high quality start. Strasburg is 4-1 with a 2.53 ERA in June this year. The last time Strasburg allowed more than three runs in a start was against the Braves on May 26, six starts ago. The Braves starter that day: Mike Minor.

Let's get a win!!
