SUNDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTFrancisco Liriano, LHP, Twins
Liriano breezed through the Mariners' lineup, striking out 11 over seven scoreless innings in the Twins' 4-0 win. Liriano permitted just two hits for his fourth consecutive win. Liriano has not allowed a run in his past three outings, a span of 21 innings.
WORSTJonathon Niese, LHP, Mets
All three Mets pitchers to go to the mound in a 14-1 loss against the Diamondbacks were smacked around. It was Niese, though, who got it all started. He gave up seven hits, six runs, two homers and three walks in 4 1/3 innings. The loss was Niese's third in his past four decisions.
MONDAY'S BEST MATCHUPS
Mets at Braves, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
A marquee matchup between a pair of staff aces. The Mets' Johan Santana has not lost since June 26, going 3-0 with three no-decisions. He gave up more than one run in just one of those starts. Tim Hudson has allowed only one run in his past two starts, both wins.
Twins at Rays, 7:10 p.m. ET
The Rays' Jeremy Hellickson makes his major league debut after going 12-3 with 123 strikeouts in 117 2/3 innings at Triple-A. He faces the nearly unbeatable Carl Pavano, who is 8-0 over his past 10 starts.
Padres at Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. ET
Will this be the outing in which Hiroki Kuroda gets some help? The Dodgers have been shut out twice, scored one run once and scored two runs once in his past four starts. Clayton Richard's most recent start came against the Dodgers, and it went well. Five days earlier, he allowed one run over six innings in a 6-1 San Diego win.
