Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Cubs head to San Francisco for a series against the Giants, and the Rays continue their road swing in Detroit against the Tigers.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule for Monday offers up Boston at the Yankees, the White Sox at Baltimore, Kansas City at the Angels, Oakland at Seattle, and Tampa Bay at Detroit. The Rays are expected to send David Price (14-5, 2.82 ERA) to the mound in that last contest, while the Tigers counter with Armando Galarraga (3-4, 4.32 ERA). Lefthander Price had to settle for a no-decision against the Twins in his last trip to the mound (one run over seven innings), but he beat Detroit on July 29 (two runs over 6 1-3 innings). Righthander Galarraga is coming off a loss to the White Sox in which he gave up four runs on eight hits over his 7 2-3 innings of work, walking five hitters in the game.

Over in the National League on Monday it’s then St. Louis at Cincinnati, Atlanta at Houston, Arizona at Milwaukee, and the Cubs at San Francisco. Carlos Zambrano (3-6, 5.61 ERA) is slated to return to the rotation for Chicago in that last contest against the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner (4-4, 3.20 ERA). Righthander Zambrano last started back on June 25 against the White Sox, giving up four runs on four hits in just one inning of work in that defeat before going on the restricted list. Lefthander Bumgarner will be looking to bounce back from a loss to the Rockies in his most recent trip to the mound; Bumgarner gave up four runs on nine hits over four innings while fanning three that day.
