Mariners at Rangers, 8:05 ET If you haven't noticed, Texas is the team that's holding the hot potato prize that will be first place in the AL West. The Rangers are 18-14, have a healthy and homering Josh Hamilton(notes) back on the roster and closer Frank Francisco(notes) (right) still hasn't allowed an earned run while racking up nine saves. With a win tonight, Texas can extend its lead over Seattle to 3.5 games while keeping eye on those soon-to-be hard charging Angels. (Ervin Santana(notes) and John Lackey(notes) are both back soon).
Padres at Cubs, 8:05 Tonight's starter Ted Lilly(notes) has been dominant at Wrigley Field so far this season, going 2-1 with a 0.42 ERA and 0.60 WHIP. He'll face Chris Young, who will hopefully reprise his role in that entertaining (and tall!) slapfight that he and Derrek Lee(notes) had in the Friendly Confines a few years back.
Yankees at Blue Jays, 7:07 It'll be tough to top what Roy Halladay(notes) did in the series opener, but rookie Scott Richmond(notes) can get the Rogers Centre crowd buzzing with a good effort against Andy Pettitte(notes) tonight. The native Canadian (swoon) is 4-1 with a 3.29 ERA and is just a few starts away from being on everyone's ROY favorites (if he's not there already).
