Last time I checked, it's about 700 degrees in Texas. So, of course, Major League Baseball decided at 2:05 local time start on a Sunday in July was a great place for Texas and Baltimore to end their first halves. Seriously, the forecast high for the DFW metro area is 92, with a chance for thunderstorms, and I imagine that's got to be considered a cool spell for Texas in July.
As for the pitchers, well, both have sucked this year, although Millwood seems to be righting the ship as of late. Yahoo! Sports preview of the game tells us that Millwood is 3-1 with a 2.42 ERA in his past four starts, pitching at least six innings in each appearance.
Yeah, well D-Cabs worked with Jim Palmer on Thursday, so it's all flowers and candy for us. Take that, Rangers!
