The Biscuits and Lookouts finish their series with a sure-to-be-sweltering 5:05 p.m. start today.
There's a certain amount of disbelief over Chris Mason saying he'll have pink hair for his start Thursday against Jacksonville, but Mason says he's doing it. Though umpire Matt Hensel is back in the lineup today after being hit and needing eight minutes to recover Saturday, crewmate Rusty Barrett will miss his third straight game today. Barrett had a friend's wedding to attend.
