WEDNESDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTAdam Dunn, 1B, Nationals
Dunn went deep three times against the Padres, and the Nationals needed them all in a 7-6 win. It marked the first time in his career Dunn, who went 3-for-4 and drove home five of Washington's runs, connected on three homers in one game.
WORSTChris Narveson, LHP, Brewers
You have to be good to beat Tim Lincecum. The Brewers were not. Narveson gave up nine hits, 10 runs and three homers in 3 1/3 innings of Milwaukee's 15-2 pounding at home against the Giants. All told, the seven Brewers pitches gave up 18 hits.
THURSDAY'S BEST MATCHUPS
Cardinals at Rockies, 3:10 p.m. ET
This one leads the marquee -- Ubaldo Jimenez (14-1, 2.27 ERA) against Chris Carpenter (9-2, 3.16 ERA). Jimenez has not lost since his lone defeat on May 9; Carpenter lost for the first time since May 13 in his most recent outing.
Reds at Phillies, 7:05 p.m. ET
Reds starter Johnny Cueto has allowed a total of four runs over his past four starts, stretching across 25 2/3 innings. The offense hasn't done its part; Cincinnati has lost two of those games.
Yankees at Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET
Andy Pettitte has not yet lost away from Yankee Stadium, going 3-0 with a 2.59 ERA on the road. The Mariners' Jason Vargas has lost his past two starts, but then, Seattle has scored one whole run for him in those two outings.
