Preview: Rays (30-25) at Indians (30-25)
Game: 3
Venue: Progressive Field
Date: June 02, 2013 1:05 PM EDT


Jeremy Hellickson is already struggling for the Tampa Bay Rays as he heads into a month that is historically bad for him.

The Rays starter somehow was unbeaten despite a poor May and will take the ball in Sunday's season series finale against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.

Hellickson (2-2, 5.61 ERA) posted a 6.69 ERA in May that was baseball's sixth-worst mark. He won his lone decision in six outings last month, becoming the sixth pitcher in big-league history with an ERA that high in at least six starts to still go unbeaten in a month.

It doesn't bode well for the right-hander that he is 1-7 in nine career starts in June with a 4.56 ERA - his worst in any month. He gave up five runs over 5 1-3 innings Tuesday against baseball's lowest scoring team and did not receive a decision in a 7-6 win over Miami.

One problem for Hellickson this season is that he is stranding only 62.1 percent of baserunners for one of baseball's lowest marks. He stranded 82.7 percent of runners in 2012 to lead the majors.

Hellickson is 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA in three starts against the Indians. Numerous Cleveland hitters have poor numbers against him, including Mark Reynolds (3 for 18), Nick Swisher (2 for 11), Mike Aviles (2 for 10) and Carlos Santana (0 for 7).

The Indians are also starting a right-hander in Zach McAllister (4-4, 3.08), who has yet to allow more than three earned runs in any outing. Cleveland had won five straight of his starts before he gave up three runs and a season-high 10 hits over 5 1-3 innings in Tuesday's 8-2 defeat at Cincinnati.

McAllister is 1-1 with a 1.53 ERA in three outings against Tampa Bay, yielding four runs - two earned - over six innings April 5 in a 4-0 road loss to the Rays.

These teams have identical 30-25 records after splitting the first two of this three-game set, with Tampa Bay holding a 3-2 lead in the season series.

Indians manager Terry Francona has rotated his designated hitter throughout the season, with Santana and Reynolds getting the most of the starts there. Reynolds was out of Saturday's lineup in favor of Jason Giambi, and the move paid off as the 42-year-old Giambi hit a two-run homer and finished with three RBIs in a 5-0 victory that snapped the Rays' six-game win streak.

"I'm delirious right now,' said Giambi, who has homered in his last three games. "I feel like Pinocchio with no strings. My last two at_bats I thought about bunting because of the bat speed that I have, but then I said, I have to run. I was done.'

James Loney went 0 for 3 for Tampa Bay after homering three times over his previous two games, including two in Friday's 9-2 victory that ended at 2:53 a.m. due to rain.

"It was a tough day to come back and play this game," manager Joe Maddon said Saturday. "We'll get a good night's sleep and come back and do well tomorrow."

Tampa Bay has won seven of 11 at Cleveland since losing 18 straight there from Sept. 29, 2005-July 23, 2010.

Preview: Mets (22-31) at Marlins (15-41)
Game: 3
Venue: Marlins Park
Date: June 02, 2013 1:10 PM EDT


One-third of the Miami Marlins' victories have come against the New York Mets.

The Marlins are in position for their first sweep of the season, but they'll be up against Matt Harvey in Sunday's series finale in Miami.

Miami (15-41) is 5-3 against New York (22-31) and 10-38 against everyone else after winning 8-1 on Saturday. Marlins starter Jose Fernandez threw seven scoreless innings to match the effort the night before by Jacob Turner in a 5-1 victory.

The starter in the spotlight Sunday, however, will be Harvey (5-0, 1.85 ERA). He's one of three NL pitchers with at least 10 starts that is still undefeated, joining Arizona's Patrick Corbin and Cincinnati's Mat Latos - who also both pitch Sunday.

Harvey leads the majors in opponent batting average (.172) and WHIP (0.82) and owns five career starts in which he has struck out at least 10. He's the first Mets pitcher with that many such outings in his first 21 major league starts since Dwight Gooden recorded eight such starts in 1984.

This will be the hard-throwing right-hander's second look at a Miami team averaging a major league-low 2.9 runs. Harvey lasted a season-low 5 1-3 innings and allowed one run with seven strikeouts in a 4-3, 15-inning road loss April 29.

He's won one of his last seven starts, yielding one run over eight innings with 10 strikeouts and not receiving a decision in Tuesday's 2-1 home victory over the Yankees.

"Matt Harvey, what can you say? He's been in every game he's pitched and if we scored him some runs he'd be 9-0," manager Terry Collins said.

The Mets were riding high entering this series after sweeping four games from their Subway Series rivals while the lowly Marlins had dropped a season-high nine straight entering this weekend.

New York, though, has totaled 12 hits and two walks with 15 strikeouts in the first two games.

David Wright is 0 for 8, John Buck is 1 for 7 with four strikeouts and Daniel Murphy is 2 for 8. That trio has combined for one RBI in this series after combining for 15 in the first six meetings between these NL East rivals.

The Mets have had problems with rookie Marcell Ozuna, who is 6 for 14 against them with a three-hit effort Friday. Chris Coghlan was Saturday's hitting star with three hits and two RBIs.

The Marlins are trying for their second three-game win streak and first since April 28-30 when two of the wins came over the Mets.

Miami will try to break a four-game skid in starts by Kevin Slowey (1-5, 3.59), who is 0-3 with an 8.00 ERA in that span. He gave up four runs over 5 1-3 innings on Tuesday, failed to hold onto a two-run lead and did not get a decision in a 7-6 defeat to Tampa Bay.

"You're disappointed anytime your team gives you the lead and you can't hold on to it," Slowey said.

Slowey is 0-3 with a 3.67 ERA in six home outings, and 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in two overall in his career against the Mets. Buck is 3 for 11 against the right-hander, and Wright is 2 for 6 with a homer.

Preview: Tigers (30-24) at Orioles (31-25)
Game: 3
Venue: Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Date: June 02, 2013 1:35 PM EDT


Baltimore's Kevin Gausman has had a very rude introduction to the major leagues, and allowing home runs has been a particularly big problem.

Facing one of the best offenses in baseball doesn't figure to make his transition any easier.

Gausman tries a third time for his first major league victory Sunday when the Orioles and Detroit Tigers conclude a three-game set at Camden Yards.

In need of a starter with Wei-Yin Chen on the disabled list, the Orioles promoted the highly touted Gausman from Double-A and started him against Toronto on May 23. The 22-year-old right-hander showed flashes of potential in that outing but allowed four runs and seven hits over five innings in a 12-6 loss.

Gausman (0-2, 11.00 ERA) fared far worse against light-hitting Washington on Tuesday, lasting four innings after giving up seven runs - including three homers - and eight hits in a 9-3 defeat.

``Pitching in the big leagues is hard. He's got the talent to do it and eventually he will,' Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. ``I look forward to it being next time out. He knows mistakes get magnified here. But it's part of the process.'

After serving up four homers in nine innings, the Tigers (30-24) would appear to be a terrible matchup for Gausman, but the Orioles kept him on his regular turn instead of pushing his start to Tuesday against Houston.

Detroit and Baltimore are tied for the major league lead with 283 runs, and the Tigers rank first with a .278 batting average.

"That's something that's up to them, but obviously it shows that they have a lot of faith in me," Gausman told the team's official website. "My confidence is still there and I know that I have the pitches to be there. I just need to be more consistent with them and just try to get better, and just try to attack the bottom half of the zone."

Exactly what Gausman will have to deal with was on full display Saturday, when Detroit hit a season-high five homers in a 10-3 rout of the Orioles (31-25). Four of those home runs came in a wild fourth inning in which Baltimore starter Jason Hammel was ejected.

Hammel surrendered consecutive homers to Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta and Alex Avila in the frame and was ejected after hitting Matt Tuiasosopo with a pitch.

``I'm not going to make a big deal of it. I hit him with a slider,' Hammel said. ``Zero intent there to hit him. Obviously I give up three home runs, but I'm not the guy that answers getting hit around with hitting somebody. That's bush league if you ask me. It was a mistake. A slider that got away.'

Miguel Cabrera capped the eight-run inning with a grand slam, raising his major league-leading RBI total to 65. He's batting .436 with six homers and 14 RBIs in his last 10 games at Camden Yards.

Prince Fielder hit his first home run in 21 games for the Tigers, who had lost four in a row.

Baltimore will try to rebound against Rick Porcello (2-2, 5.29), who is coming off one of the best performances of his career. He matched a personal best with eight innings and struck out a career-high 11 in Detroit's 1-0 loss in 11 innings to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

The right-hander had posted a 2.89 ERA in his first three starts in May before allowing five runs and 10 hits over five innings against Minnesota on May 23.

Porcello is 1-3 with a 4.50 ERA in five starts against the Orioles, losing his only meeting last season.

Nick Markakis is 6 for 13 with a home run off him.

Preview: Nationals (28-27) at Braves (32-22)
Game: 3
Venue: Turner Field
Date: June 02, 2013 1:35 PM EDT


If the Washington Nationals are to remain within striking distance of the first-place Atlanta Braves in the NL East, they'll need to do so without one or maybe two of their talented young stars for the time being.

With the reality of injuries to Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg casting a shadow over the club, the visiting Nationals hope to bounce back from a rough loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Washington (28-28) dropped four of six this week while Harper sat with bursitis in his left knee. The Nationals placed the outfielder on the disabled list Saturday, hours before they fell 2-1 in 10 innings at Atlanta (33-22).

Harper is batting .287 with 12 homers and 23 RBIs in 44 games.

"You always do what's best for the player,' manager Davey Johnson said.

"If the club felt that he would be able to come back in three or four or five days, we wouldn't have DL'd him.'

Strasburg, meanwhile, is dealing with a slight strain in his right side. The club hopes the right-hander can avoid joining Harper on the DL.

Those injuries pose more obstacles for the Nationals, who have lost 13 of 21 and are 5 1/2 games behind the Braves.

Gio Gonzalez allowed one run and three hits over seven innings Saturday, but Washington matched the Braves with five hits and lost on B.J. Upton's RBI single to even the three-game set

"I'm proud of these guys," Gonzalez said. "They worked their tails off. They do it every game. I'm not disappointed at all. They're playing their hearts out.'

Hitting .145 heading into Saturday's contest, the slumping Upton was held out of two straight starts by manager Fredi Gonzalez, who even toyed with the idea of asking him to work out his problems during a minor-league assignment.

Upton was 0 for 12 in his previous five games versus Washington, which had its three-game winning streak against the Braves snapped.

"Everybody knows how hard he's been working to try to get things back on track," Braves pitcher Tum Hudson said. "Hopefully this is just a small sign of things to come. Everybody is really happy for him and it was exciting to see.'

Scheduled Atlanta starter Paul Maholm (6-4, 3.74 ERA) is 2-1 in his last four starts but has a 4.94 ERA during that span. After giving up one run in 7 1-3 innings of an 8-3 win over Minnesota on May 22, Maholm yielded five, including four in the first frame, and 10 hits through six of a 7-6, 10-inning win at Toronto on Tuesday.

The left-hander is 2-7 with a 4.64 ERA in 12 starts versus Washington, but has allowed only a two-run homer to Ian Desmond and six other hits over 15 2-3 innings while going 1-1 against the Nationals this season.

Washington counters with right-hander Nathan Karns (0-0, 6.23), who allowed three runs and five hits - including two homers - in 4 1-3 innings of a 9-3 win over Baltimore in his major league debut Tuesday.

"I thought he handled himself well," Johnson said. "I know he was nervous but I like the way he went after the hitters.'

Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman had two hits Saturday after he went 0 for 8 in the previous two games.
