New York Mets (54-55) at Philadelphia Phillies (61-48)

7:05 PM ET -- Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Starting Pitchers

New York: Johan Santana (8-6, 3.20 ERA)

Philadelphia: Cole Hamels (7-7, 3.56 ERA)

There's no place like home, especially for the Phillies. Philadelphia is riding a 12-game home winning streak tonight against the visiting Mets. Cole Hamels will take the ball for Philadelphia, looking for his first decision in four chances since the break. The left-hander is 2-2 with a 2.70 ERA against the Mets at Citizens Bank Park. Johan Santana is on the hill for the Mets, and can avenge his last visit, a loss, to Citizens Bank Park May 2. The Phillies scored nine times in the fourth inning in an 11-5 win. Santana allowed 4 HRs in 3 2/3 innings. He is 0-1 with a 7.82 ERA in his last 2 starts.

Buck Showalter/Kevin Milwood

Chicago White Sox (62-47) at Baltimore Orioles (36-73)

7:05 PM ET -- Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland

Starting Pitchers

Chicago: Gavin Floyd (7-8, 3.54 ERA)

Baltimore: Kevin Millwood (2-11, 6.05 ERA)

The Baltimore Orioles are undefeated under new manager Buck Showalter. Kevin Millwood can help his skipper win a fifth straight game tonight. Only one Orioles manager has won his first 5 games with the team: Hall of Famer Earl Weaver in 1968. Tonight's win won't be easy, especially if Millwood's recent struggles continue. He has a 9.18 ERA in his last 10 starts, allowing 11 HRs over that stretch. To make things worse, he’s 1-5 in 10 career starts vs the White Sox. Chicago counters with Gavin Floyd who has not yielded more than one earned run in six consecutive starts and is 5-2 with a 1.06 ERA in his last 11. The White Sox have been one of the hottest teams in the majors since June 8 with a 38-14 record, but they have dropped eight of 14 on the road.
