Accuweather says, "There are showers and thunderstorms developing this morning to the west and south of St. Louis and some of these will reach the metro area this afternoon. There is a pretty good chance the game will get completed today, but there is a chance of a delay. These showers and storms will be fairly slow moving and a 60 to 90 minute rainfall is a possibility. Gusty winds and heavy rainfall can accompany the strongest storms. The temperature at first pitch will be 78 degrees with a rise to around 84 degrees by the end of the game. It will be humid with AccuWeather RealFeel Temperatures in the middle 80s during much of the game. The wind will blow toward the left field corner at around 10 mph throughout the game."

Two-out walk to Jose Ramirez bites Chris Sale as the Indians go up 2-1 after Mike Napoli's triple; Ramirez worked Sale for 10 pitches, getting three balls on sliders. Great AB with big repercussions.

Fun thing about Adam Eaton's fifth career lead off home run, I was talking to White Sox hitting coach Todd Steverson about Eaton's power spike last season, and about how that's going to remain part of Eaton's game. Stay tuned.
