WEDNESDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTJimmy Rollins, SS, Phillies
Rollins had a busy day in the Phillies' 8-2 win against the Giants. He went 3-for-5 with three RBIs, two runs scored and two stolen bases. It marked the second consecutive night Rollins drove home three against the Giants.
WORSTJeremy Bonderman, RHP, Tigers
Bonderman couldn't avoid trouble against the Yankees. He gave up six hits, seven runs and three homers in five innings of a 9-5 loss. Bonderman has given up five homers in his past two starts and has lost three in a row.
THURSDAY'S BEST MATCHUPS
Giants at Phillies, 7:05 p.m. ET
Phillies starter Cole Hamels probably wouldn't mind a little help. His past two outings have been the cruelest type of loss -- both were 1-0 defeats. In the two outings, he struck out 19 and walked only two. Jonathan Sanchez hasn't gone more than 5 1/3 innings in either of his past two starts.
White Sox at Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET
After losing the first two games of this series, the White Sox, now five games back in the AL Central, need a win. They're going to ask Mark Buehrle to get it. He is 1-1 this season against the Twins. He'll have to beat Carl Pavano, who is 10-1 since June 3.
Rockies at Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. ET
Think the Dodgers are happy with the acquisition of Ted Lilly? Well, he's 3-0 in three starts since arriving from the Cubs. Jorge De La Rosa seems stuck on the No. 3 lately. He's given up three runs in each of his past four starts.
