Greinke's debut -- As soon as the Brewers traded for Zack Greinke, they went from also-ran to NL Central favorite -- but Greinke's hoops dreams got in the way. Now Greinke's back and making his Brewer debut tonight against the Braves in the second game of the doubleheader. Greinke faces Braves ace Tim Hudson in his first start. With the Brewers entering the day within three games of the first-place Cardinals, he may just be motivated to try, which is good news for Milwaukee. Brewers at Braves, time TBA.
All's Wells that starts Beckett -- Vernon Wells' early-season struggles have been well chronicled -- he's hitting just .176/.227/.269 in his first year with the Angels (not exactly what you want for $86 million). But there's good news, in his 47 plate appearances against Red Sox starter Josh Beckett, he has five home runs and is hitting .293/.383/.756. Angels at Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET
Little help please -- St. Louis' Chris Carpenter is one of the game's best pitchers. So far this season he has 3.89 ERA with WHIP of 1.216 and 29 strikeouts in 37 innings. He has thrown five quality starts in his six outings this season, but has yet to win a game. It wasn't until his last start that the Cardinals actually won a game he started, although he left down a run in the seventh and Eduardo Sanchez picked up the win against the Braves. Javier Vazquez (2-2, 6.39 ERA) starts for Florida. Marlins at Cardinals, 8:15 p.m. ETFor more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
