Andre Ethier
By C. Trent Rosecrans

Streaking -- Los Angeles' Andre Ethier looks to extend his hitting streak to 28 against the Cubs tonight. Chicago starts left-hander James Russell, who Ethier's only faced once. In their lone matchup, Ethier grounded out to Russell on July 8, 2010. Ethier is hitting .219/.242/.344 against left-handers this year. Cubs at Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. ET

Matchup of the night -- Bartolo Colon's first two starts of the season have been fantastic -- he's 2-0 with a  1.84 ERA as a starter. Justin Verlander has traditionally started the season slowly, going 9-14 with a 4.75 ERA in March in April in his career, but he's 18-8 with a 2.75 ERA in the month of May. Yankees at Tigers, 7:05 p.m. ET

Flu boys -- Jered Weaver and Clay Buchholz each had their starts backed up a day to Monday after dealing with the flu on Sunday. Maybe that was just so we could see these two face-off at Fenway. Weaver was the best pitcher in the majors in April (so says's baseball crew), but has struggled in his five career starts at Fenway Park, going 1-3 with a 7.76 ERA. Buchholz, 17-7 with a 2.33 ERA last season, haste to post and quality start this season. He's 1-3 with a 5.33 ERA. Angels at Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET

On Deck: Ethier looks for 28

I like Andre Ethier alot, eventhough I am a Phillies fan.  But man, I saw the play last night, and that was CLEARLY error on the first baseman.  E3.  I always notice hitting streaks.  But Ethier's ENDED last night, according to THIS official scorer.
