Wednesday's Best Matchups
White Sox at Tigers, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
The two split a doubleheader Tuesday, meaning the White Sox still lead the third-place Tigers by eight games in the AL Central. Edwin Jackson, acquired from the Diamondbacks, will make his first start with the White Sox. Armando Galarraga hasn't won since June 24, going 0-2 in five starts.
Twins at Rays, 7:10 p.m. ET
David Price pitched well over eight innings in early July against the Twins, but suffered the loss in a 2-1 defeat at Target Field. The pitcher who bested Price that day? That would be Scott Baker, who takes the mound opposite Price again. After losing four of five, Baker has won his past two starts.
Astros at Cardinals, 8:10 p.m. ET
J.A. Happ, dealt to the Astros in the deal that sent Roy Oswalt to the Phillies, makes his second start for Houston. The Astros only hope it goes as well as the first one, in which Happ tossed six shutout innings in a 5-0 win against Milwaukee. He faces Chris Carpenter, who has allowed more than one run once in four starts, and that time he gave up only three in a game the Cardinals won.

TUESDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTRicky Romero, LHP, Blue Jays
Romero gave up a two-run homer to Mark Teixeira in the first, but nothing after that in tossing a complete-game in an 8-2 win over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Romero struck out four and walked two for his second consecutive win.
WORSTLaTroy Hawkins, RHP, Brewers
Hawkins' time pitching for the Cubs wasn't all that pleasant. This experience at Wrigley Field, with the Brewers, wasn't pleasant, either. In relief, he recorded one out but gave up four hits, three runs and one homer in Milwaukee's 15-3 loss to the Cubs.
