Monday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers

STREAKING

Doug Fister, Detroit Tigers (9-8, 3.49)

Fister allowed two runs over seven innings to pick up the win over the White Sox on Tuesday. The only two hits Fister gave up were a pair of solo homers. The right-hander has only surrendered five earned runs over his last two starts, picking up the win in two of those contests. He faces the White Sox again on Monday.

Cliff Lee, Philadelphia Phillies (5-7, 3.36)

Lee allowed one unearned run over seven strong innings in a 3-1 Phillies' win over the Marlins Wednesday. The left-hander has 18 strikeouts and two earned runs allowed in 20 1/3 September innings. He gets the ball against the Mets next.

SLUMPING

Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants (14-10, 3.32)

Bumgarner labored through 4 1/3 innings Tuesday, allowing five runs to the Rockies last time out. The lefty has yielded at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts and has watched his ERA balloon from 2.83 on August 25 to 3.32 following his latest poor effort. He draws the same Colorado squad in his next start.

Aaron Cook, Boston Red Sox (3-10, 5.18)

Cook yielded three earned runs in five innings of work in a loss to the Yankees Wednesday. The righty has been tabbed with losses in five of his last six starts and takes the bump against the Rays on Monday.
