A pitcher’s duel on paper

Last night's matchup of Rick Porcello and Jeanmar Gomez seemed to have all of the markings of a home run derby before it turned into the best pitcher's duel of the year. Tonight? Anibal Sanchez and AJ Burnett have spent the whole season striking out guys like crazy. They'd betainly be two pitchers you'd think would be capable of the game that we saw last night. We'll see how things turn out. 

This weird series has shifted back to PNC Park tonight, which means that the game will be started at 7:05 and not 7:08. For whatever reason.
