Results, Hitter, Pitcher of the Day, Friday June 2

And we’re off! This is the plan- each day, ATVL will “cover” the previous night’s games- giving final scores, and then choosing a hitter and pitcher of the day, and ending with that night’s schedule. The pitcher is usually chosen by game score, and the hitter by a more nebulous interior monologue. Sometimes exterior, even.

Each winner will be followed with other performers “of note.” Enjoy!
