Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League returns from the All-Star Break with three games on Thursday, with Texas at Boston, Seattle at the Angels, and the White Sox at Minnesota. John Danks (8-7, 3.29 ERA) is expected to get the ball for Chicago in that last contest, while the Twins counter with Kevin Slowey (8-5, 4.64 ERA). Lefthander Danks tossed a gem against the Angels in his last trip to the mound, surrendering just two hits and striking out seven over nine shutout innings. Righthander Slowey took a no-decision against the Blue Jays in his last start, allowing five runs on 10 hits in 6 1-3 innings of work that day.

Over in the National League on Thursday there are four games on the schedule, with Milwaukee at Atlanta, Philadelphia at the Cubs, the Dodgers at St. Louis, and the Mets at San Francisco. New York’s R.A. Dickey (6-2, 2.77 ERA) will go up against Giants ace Tim Lincecum (9-4, 3.16 ERA) in that last matchup. Righthander Dickey picked up a loss against the Braves in his most recent start, allowing four runs (three earned) on nine hits over his 6 2-3 innings of work. Righthander Lincecum earned a victory against the Brewers last time out, surrendering just one run over seven innings while fanning 10.
