And Robinson hit a 3-run bomb to salt the game away. Made Matheny look good.
Oh, excuse me...the pitcher, (Lance Lynn?) whom I thought was a rookie had a couple of starts last year. Molina needs a rest 3 games into the season for the Reds? What are the Brewers, chopped liver?
Don't believe everything you read, my friend.
