MONDAY'S BEST AND WORST
BESTHiroki Kuroda, RHP, Dodgers
Kuroda took a no-hitter to the eighth against the Phillies. He allowed only one hit, an eighth-inning single from Shane Victorino and outdueled Roy Halladay as the Dodgers picked up the win. Kuroda, who like many of the Dodgers pitchers had not gotten much run support, won his second consecutive start.
WORSTPaul Maholm, LHP, Pirates
Pirates pitchers had a rough night -- a real rough night. The group of four that took the mound against the Cubs served up 14 runs and 18 hits. One of those hits was a homer, by Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano. The worst line? That belongs to Paul Maholm, who gave up nine hits and eight runs in 3 1/3 innings to drop to 0-4 in his past five starts.
TUESDAY'S BEST MATCHUPS
White Sox at Indians, 7:05 p.m. ET
Manny Ramirez is expected to make his debut with the White Sox. Since July 15, Ramirez has only 10 at-bats. Will he make a difference? The White Sox hope so. He has never faced Justin Masterson, who is scheduled to make the start for the Indians. The game begins a run of six games against old teams for Ramirez, who played for the Indians and Red Sox, whom the White Sox face this weekend at Fenway Park.
Brewers at Reds, 7:10 p.m. ET
Much of the attention will be on the arrival of Manny with the White Sox, but another significant addition is expected Tuesday. The Reds are set to call up hard-throwing lefty Aroldis Chapman before this game. According to various reports, Chapman hit 105 mph -- yes, 105 -- on the radar gun during a recent outing in the minors.
Royals at Rangers, 8:10 p.m. ET
Will Cliff Lee right himself? The lefty has lost each of his past three starts, giving up at least five runs in each. A given to go deep in games upon his arrival in Texas, Lee hasn't gone eight innings in any of his past four starts and did not last six innings in either of his past two.
