After a Dickerson back to back appearance on the hitter’s side we jump feet first into Logan Forsythe doing the same thing. Not to overshadow his big game against the Blue Jays, but this one was just ever-so-slightly better. He went 2-4 with a walk, a two-run homer, and he drove in two more with a huge single in the eighth that briefly put the team ahead only to see it squandered in the bottom of the frame. The two hits were in the top-three for top-five plays in the game, but unfortunately Hanley hit a granny off of Smyly in the fifth that completely changed the course of the game. I won’t miss those good Smyly starts going for naught due to some bad dude crushing a donger.

Good new/bad news time. I wasn’t able to dig up any highlights of this game on Youtube, however, I was able to find the game in it’s entirety. While you know that the outcome is bleak, there is plenty of sunshine before then. Valar Morghulis!
