Aloha Folk- I feel bad for Lackey. I am sure the collision which resulted in Schwarber out of the game and an inside the park homer, shook him up a bit. I hope he can get out the game with this lead and that the bp can come in and do a spectacular job. Kudo’s to Russell, Rizzo, Bryant, Zobrist (bb’s) for stepping up and regaining the lead. I hope get good news about Schwarber soon. Mahalo.
