YANKS AT TWINS (Mussina 15-7 vs Blackburn 9-6)

The Yanks will be in a nasty mood after being hammered in Anaheim. Mike Mussina has been great against Minnesota, going 11-5 at the Metrodome and a stellar 22-6 lifetime. YANKEES.

M’S at ANGELS (Washburn 5-11 vs Garland 10-7)

It’s a short two-game series and the M’s catch the Halos off the sweep of the Yankees. Seattle gets a flat team at a big price. MARINERS...Bonus: M’s +1½

PHILS at DODGERS (Hamels 9-8 vs Kershaw 2-3)

REDS at PIRATES (Volquez 13-5 vs Karstens 2-0)

The Reds are in a funk and Volquez is not what he was prior to the All-Star Game. Jeff Karstens has a 0.00 ERA and is 2-0. PIRATES...Bonus: BREWERS
