It’s a beautiful day at the Coliseum, a bright blue sky on a warm sunny afternoon. Perfect conditions for some baseball.
Last night’s win ended a tough month for the club but the calendar has turned and it is now July. Winning today would secure the series win and give the club a good start to the month.
Lefty Kyle Muller was added to the roster this morning for the start this afternoon against the White Sox. The team made room for him by sending Kirby Snead to Triple-A:

He’ll be backed up by this lineup:
