This Will Be Interesting

The Las Vegas 51s and Sacramento River Cats started a game on May 6 that they will finish tonight.

Carlos Torres was set to take the mound for the 51s but he never got the chance.  He is now set to start today's Mets game as a Major League pitcher.  Sonny Gray started the game for the River Cats and with MLB experience under his belt he can continue his effort and leave his two walk performance in the past.

The two players walked by Gray were Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Collin Cowgill.  Nieuwenhuis has also spent time in the big leagues since the game started, and Cowgill is now on the Angels.

Reese Havens is in the lineup, playing 2nd base, but he will be replaced as he has now found himself on the disabled list mid-game.

Josh Satin will need a replacement at first base and Omar Quintanilla will need a replacement at shortstop because they, too, are playing for the Mets today.

I wish you luck if you choose to keep score during this game.  As Keith Hernandez might say, get your highlighters ready.
