I had every intention of writing a real Game Thread, but life happens.
I will say, this was supposed to be Andrew Heaney’s spot in the rotation before he went on the injured list with shoulder discomfort. Tony Gonsolin’s performance on Wednesday made this Tyler Anderson start more possible. It may have robbed us of a Ryan Pepiot debut, but that’ll come soon enough.
First pitch is at 5:40 PM PT.
