SUNDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTDrew Stubbs, CF, Reds
In all of June, Stubbs hit two homers and drove home 10 runs. On Sunday at windblown Wrigley Field, he hit three homers and drove home five runs in the Reds' 14-3 win. His powerful day lifted his OPS from .688 to .730 and his SLG from .380 to .417.
WORSTJeremy Bonderman, RHP, Tigers
You have to be good when you face Cliff Lee. Bonderman wasn't. He gave up nine hits, seven runs and two homers in five innings of work in an 8-1 loss against the Mariners. Bonderman has given up at least one homer in each of his past seven starts and twice gave up a pair in one game.
MONDAY'S BEST MATCHUPS
Braves at Phillies, 7:05 p.m. ET, ESPN
Roy Halladay has lost four of his past five starts, partly because he hasn't gone much support from an ailing Phillies offense and partly because he has given up 44 hits in 37 innings. Derek Lowe could use some support, too. The Braves have scored twice in his past two starts.
Red Sox at Rays, 7:10 p.m. ET
They enter with nearly identical records -- the Red Sox are 49-33, the Rays 48-33 -- and both chasing the Yankees in the AL East. Matt Garza won at Fenway Park in his most recent start, beating the same pitcher he will face Monday, Boston's Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Reds at Mets, 7:10 p.m. ET
The Reds scored double digits in two of their past three games; the Mets came close in their most recent, scoring nine times in a win against the Nationals. Aaron Harang faces Mike Pelfrey, who is 10-2 but coming off a rough outing against the Marlins.
