Cleveland Indians (50-52) vs. Kansas City Royals (41-60) 8:10 PM ET
Tampa Bay Rays (53-50) vs. Oakland Athletics (56-46) 10:05 PM ET
The Oakland Athletics hope to continue their torrid pace Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays, only in far less time than it took to win Monday's series opener. The Athletics recorded their major league-leading 12th walk-off victory in a five-hour, nine-minute marathon that saw them set an Oakland record by striking out 21 times. The club has posted six straight one-run triumphs at home, where it has won nine of its last 17 in walk-off fashion.
Oakland, which leads the American League wild-card standings and is 3 1/2 games behind Texas in the West, has won 19 of 23 contests in July – including 13 of 16 since the All-Star break. Tampa Bay had allowed a total of three runs in its three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels over the weekend before yielding four on Monday. The Rays are 4-3 on their nine-game road trip.
Toronto Blue Jays (51-51) vs. Seattle Mariners (48-57) 10:10 PM ET
Philadelphia Phillies (45-57) vs. Washington Nationals (61-40) 7:05 PM ET
Miami Marlins (47-55) vs. Atlanta Braves (58-44) 7:10 PM ET
Kris Medlen makes his first start in two years for the red-hot Atlanta Braves, who hope the right-hander can add stability to the back end of their rotation. Medlen, who missed almost all of 2011 recovering from Tommy John surgery, made four starts in 2009 and 14 starts in 2010 before moving to the bullpen. Atlanta has won six games in a row. The Miami Marlins’ big offseason spending and hopes of contending have imploded the past two weeks. Miami has dropped nine of its past 12.
One bright spot recently for the Marlins is shortstop Jose Reyes, who carries a 17-game hitting streak into the second contest of a four-game series at Turner Field. Atlanta, which won the opener 8-2 on Monday, has defeated Miami seven times in nine tries this season. The Braves at 16-5 since losing to the Chicago Cubs on July 4.
San Diego Padres (44-60) vs. Cincinnati Reds (61-41) 7:10 PM ET
Pittsburgh Pirates (58-44) vs. Chicago Cubs (43-58) 8:05 PM ET
Houston Astros (35-69) vs. Milwaukee Brewers (46-56) 8:10 PM ET
St. Louis Cardinals (54-48) vs. Colorado Rockies (37-63) 8:40 PM ET
