Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an entire year of watching baseball from anywhere other than the ballpark. The occasional memory refresher can come in handy. Here’s a reminder of what we may have missed while most of us were still staying at home.

Joe Musgrove (11-9, 3.15) allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks with six strikeouts in five and two-thirds innings. Tommy La Stella hit a solo home run in the first inning.
