Before the game, Dusty Baker said that Lucas Giolito was on more of a "performance count" than a pitch count. Either way, Giolito's sittin' pretty: He's thrown just 32 pitches through three scoreless innings. Now about that sky...

I asked Nats manager Dusty Baker, who debuted at 19 years old, what his best managerial advice is for young players making their debut. He said that teammate Hank Aaron told him, "Be nervous, but don't be scared." So far, through two scoreless innings, 21-year old Lucas Giolito looks neither scared nor nervous. Coincidentally, Aaron wore number 44, the same number that Giolito is wearing in his Washington debut tonight.

Jon Lester singled home the Cubs second run of the game giving their pitchers 19 RBI, one behind San Francisco pitchers for most in baseball by a pitching staff. Cubs pitchers also rank second in home runs (2) and second in batting average.

Dodgers rookie Julio Urias appeared to pick off the Brewers' Jonathan Villar at first base, but replay overturned it. So Urias went right back to first base with the pickoff throw after the replay and this one counted. Four pickoffs already this year for the 19-year-old.

Somebody dialed up San Diego weather for Milwaukee tonight. Dave Roberts, was that you? 71 degrees at first pitch.

After prolonged slump, Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton has found his stroke as of late. Tigers can't be too pleased about that. Stanton crushes a two-run homer in his first at-bat, smoking a line drive deep to center that traveled 442 feet, according to Statcast.

More bad news for the Yankees -- and this could be really bad. Carlos Beltran just left the game after singling to left field. Beltran appeared to be favoring his legs,as he went around first base. After being checked out by a trainer and manager Joe Girardi, Beltran was removed from the game. Beltran has been by far the Yankees best hitter this season.

Cardinals shortstop Aledmys Diaz, who fouled a ball off the plate and directly off his right eyebrow Monday night, passed his concussions tests and the X-rays showed no fracture. Now, the inflammation just needs to subside enough to allow Diaz to see well enough to return to the starting lineup. It could be a couple of days, at least. Diaz discussed the injury scare and how long he might be out:
