Tucker a late scratch
The Zephyrs go for three in a row on Sunday over Round Rock. Today’s scheduled starter for New Orleans, Ryan Tucker, is not feeling well and has been scratched. Brian Lawrence will get the nod today, and Tucker will hope to be ready for Monday night’s series finale. Some notes:
–NOLA has won 5 of the first six meetings against the Express.
–The Zephyrs have two players that have started all 10 games this season. Both Bryan Petersen and Jason Lane will not start today.
–Round Rock first baseman Lance Berkman is expected to play seven innings this afternoon and be activated in time for the Astros series-opener against the Marlins on Tuesday.
Here is the line up for today:
