Good morning. Here’s the rundown:
LAST NIGHT: Luis Robert led a clubbing of Sonny Gray while Johnny Cueto endured early traffic for a satisfying 12-2 victory in the opener against the Twins.
TONIGHT: It’s Michael Kopech against Devin Smeltzer, who is left-handed.
ON THE FARM: José Rodríguez walks it off for Birmingham, and Colson Montgomery keeps chugging along.
AROUND THE LEAGUE: The depleted Royals defeat the Blue Jays, the Guardians keep pace, and the Mariners still can’t lose.
