Game time is 7:35 on CSN and RSN.

This is what they call a "winning streak."

To be cliche, "He is his own worst enemy," pretty much sums up Daniel Cabrera. You really couldn't ask for a more different matchup of two starting pitchers. Towers doesn't walk anyone (1.47 BB/9) and his strikeouts are up (5.33 K/9) from last season (3.95). He's never going to be even a third starter, probably, but for a back-end starter, you can do worse than a reliable control pitcher.
