The post-holiday schedule includes two national telecasts. All times Eastern (and all games Tuesday are night games).â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., ESPN, FSN Midwest, CSN Bay Area: Giants at Cardinals. The Giants defeated St. Louis on Monday to stay within a half game of the first-place Diamondbacks. (Do you realize how odd that sounds? First-place Diamondbacks?) Ryan Vogelsong faces Chris Carpenter tonight.
7 p.m., FSN Wisconsin, FSN Ohio: Brewers at Reds. This game is featured because Zack Greinke is pitching against Chad Reineke. Do you realize how difficult it is to get a pitching matchup between players whose names rhyme?â†µâ†µ
10 p.m., MLB Network, KCAL, ROOT Sports Denver: Rockies at Dodgers. The Rockies are under .500. The Dodgers are having all kinds of trouble on and off the field. Yet, here they are on MLB Network tonight. Clayton Mortensen pitches against Ted Lilly.â†µ
