So if Riley Adams married Austin Riley would he be called Riley Riley?  And would he be a switch hitter?

Right throw.  Soto would have gone home and let the runner advance to 3rd with <2 out

So, how many three-inning-at-best pitchers does the team have?

Garcia just misread the throw from Adams, thinking it would carry in the air into the runner and not bounce?

Maybe a bad bounce. Maybe Garcia just sucks at fielding.

Carpenter calling out the silly fans crying about the "jinx" by mentioning a no-hitter in progress. 

Might be the thing I like best about Bob, he refuses to pander to jinx fairy believers.
