Meeting up on the diamond . . .

Around the American League on Sunday it’ll be Detroit at Cleveland, Texas at Boston, Toronto at Baltimore, the White Sox at Minnesota, Oakland at Kansas City, Seattle at the Angels, and Tampa Bay at the Yankees. David Price (12-4, 2.42 ERA) is scheduled to take on Andy Pettitte (11-2, 2.70 ERA) in that last contest. Lefthander Price beat the Red Sox in his last start before the break, giving up just two runs on eight hits over 7 2-3 innings of work while fanning 10. Lefthander Pettitte also won his final first-half outing, holding the Mariners to just one run on five hits over eight innings of work, fanning nine.

Meanwhile, Sunday’s National League schedule features Washington at Florida, Colorado at Cincinnati, Houston at Pittsburgh, Milwaukee at Atlanta, the Dodgers at St. Louis, Arizona at San Diego, the Mets at San Francisco, and Philadelphia at the Cubs. The Phillies are expected to go with Roy Halladay (10-7, 2.19 ERA) on Sunday, while the Cubs counter with Tom Gorzelanny (4-5, 3.16 ERA). Righthander Halladay had to settle for a no-decision against the Reds in his last outing despite tossing nine scoreless innings and giving up just five hits. Lefthander Gorzelanny beat the Dodgers in his last trip to the mound, surrendering just two runs (one earned) on six hits in his six innings.
