No Bourn again today... It also looks like Loretta's Grand Slam from last night got him a start at 3rd. This will be Loretta's first start since July 23rd in which he started at short stop against the Pirates. Most of the playing time at 3rd this season has been between Wigginton and Blum. I can't remember the last time Loretta started at 3rd base this season, but I can tell you that he's only started there 7 times before tonight.

The big storyline of tonight is obviously the pitching match up. Roy Oswalt against Johan Santana. Santana made comments before the season started that he was looking to win the Cy Young this year... he hasn't been the best pitcher so far; but he has been in the top 10. Hopefully Roy O can put him in his place tonight.
