Moving people and technology forward. 6 45, let's check in with Dave Preston. Sean, I'm looking outside. Do you see any silver linings? Not yet. I see one at Wrigley Field. The nationals come up short against the Chicago Cubs four two, but the silver lining saw 30 year old rookie joint and asked his Homer for the fourth time in 7 games for manager Davey Martinez. It's awesome. And he's working some really good at bats it really is. I mean, and we saw what he did in the modern leagues. Driving the ball. But you always got a great approach up there, you know, with two strikes you see him trying to stay on the ball and hit the ball the other way. When he gets ahead of the count, I mean, he really could use the baseball. That's about 39 games under 536 and a half games behind the NL east leading New York mets who beat Cincinnati ten to two Orioles are now tied for the final wild card spot of the American League after Tampa Bay. Tumbles to Milwaukee for three and ten innings. Birds and Toronto right now in the middle of a rain delay at Camden yards.
