Finally! Baseball has returned. Granted, it was still just a meaningless exhibition, but it was baseball nonetheless. And exciting baseball at that.
The Fish got out to a 6-0 in Atlanta on Tuesday night, but the bullpen couldn’t make it hold up, surrendering eight runs in the eighth, and then a walk-off blast in the bottom of the ninth to fall 10-9.
On the bright side, the offense exploded for nine runs, including back-to-back-to-back homers to lead off the third.
They also got three scoreless innings from Jose Ureña — who didn’t quite hit Ronald Acuña this time — and one from likely closer Brandon Kintzler, who pitched the fifth. We’ve got your full recap here.

- Despite his exclusion from the initial 30-man active roster, Mr. Harrison says he knows he’s ready for the big leagues.
