Tri-City at Mahoning Valley, Double Header, game 1 at 6:00 CST

Game 1, Adrian Houser is on the bump. Game 2, Michael Feliz which is Spanish for "happy strikeouts" starts.

Here's a video I shot with my iPhone showing George Springer's speed as he legs out an infield hit in the July 9 game at Round Rock. You remember the game he also hit 2 HRs and a triple.

And finally, can we solve the mystery... WHERE IS JONATHAN VILLAR?
