    That’s a great line for Whelan.

    Poor Rasner. Is T-Clip going to keep his spot warm for Rocket?

  • Phil Choy

    according to Minorleague.com, Hilligoss got a single on 3rd inning, so the streak still alive?

    The Hilligoss streak is still alive. He reached on an error and it was changed to a hit after the game.
