SUNDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTPaul Maholm, RHP, Pirates
It's not often a Pirates player finds his way into this category, but Maholm's performance was worthy. He tossed a complete-game, three-hit, zero-walk shutout in a 9-0 thumping of the Astros. Maholm struck out only one, but did not issue a walk.
WORSTBobby Jenks, RHP, White Sox
Jenks came in to close the door against the Twins. He couldn't do it. The Twins scored four times against Jenks, who did not record an out in the White Sox's 7-6 loss. Jenks' control issues helped do him in; he gave up two walks to go with a pair of hits and the four runs.
MONDAY'S BEST MATCHUPS
Phillies at Cardinals, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
It might not be something they want to brag about out loud, but the Phillies have had good fortune against Albert Pujols. Pujols has not homered and has only one RBI in four games this season against Philadelphia.
Rockies at Marlins, 7:10 p.m. ET
Ubaldo Jimenez opens his second half, looking to build upon his stunning 15-1 first half. After three so-so starts, Jimenez closed out the first half with one last gem, allowing one run over eight innings in a 4-2 win against the Cardinals.
Giants at Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. ET
The Dodgers' James McDonald makes his 46th appearance of the season, but only sixth start of the year. Madison Bumgarner is making his fifth start of the year and just the sixth start of his career. Bumgarner, after losing his first two outings of the year, has won two in a row, allowing only one run in 14 innings.
