NOTES: Kevin Mahoney has been activated from the TIE list after the birth of his son. Shane Brown has been transferred to the Staten Island roster. ... J.R. Murphy is back in the lineup after getting hit with Javier Herrera's swing yesterday. He's thrown out five of the first eight runners who've tried to steal against him.

Update - 8:14: Center fielder Slade Heathcott was a late scratch. So late, in fact, that the press box was not informed of the change until Flores led off the first. We'll find out more after the game, but it's easy to assume he's hurt.
