The pitching matchup for Saturday’s middle game of the series saw Jon Gray take the mound for the Rockies. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Pittsburgh Pirates will continue a three-game series Saturday night from Dodger Stadium.

After knocking off the Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres, the Reds would love nothing more than to go into Busch Stadium and defeat the division’s top-ranked team.

Brett Anderson and Aaron Sanchez renew acquaintances for the second time in six days, with both looking to pitch deeper into the game than last time as the Oakland Athletics and Toronto Blue Jays continue their series north of the border.Anderson (3-1, 3.04 ERA) suffered his first loss of the year in Sunday’s 5-4 defeat to the Blue Jays, but he also did not get that much of a chance to pick up the win.

A surprising sweeping win over the Seattle Mariners has the San Diego Padres riding a tidal wave of confidence heading into a three-game series with the Washington Nationals. However, they won’t have the luxury of playing at home as they embark on a seven-game road trip. The Nationals sit on the opposite end of the spectrum after losing both of their previous series meetings to the Miami Marlins and Colorado Rockies. Eric Lauer is expected to get the Game 2 start for the Padres, while the Nationals roll out right-handed pitcher Stephen Strasburg.

The Tampa Bay Rays look to maintain their hold on the top spot in the division as they play the middle game of a three-game set against the Boston Red Sox Saturday afternoon. Tampa Bay missed a chance at a home sweep of the Royals as they were drubbed 10-2 on Wednesday afternoon. Boston earned a split of a four-game set with Detroit by taking the finale 7-3 Thursday night. The pitching matchup for Friday’s series opener saw Charlie Morton take the mound for Tampa Bay. He squared off with Boston’s Josh A. Smith, who was recalled from the minors after the team shuffled their rotation.
