It's getaway day for many teams, so enjoy some afternoon (or, if you are west of Eastern time, morning) baseball. All times listed here are Eastern.â†µâ†µ
12:30 p.m., CSN Chicago, FSN Ohio: Cubs at Reds. Come see the train wreck known as the 2011 Cubs, who are riding an eight-game losing streak. Ryan Dempster attempts to break it, against Bronson Arroyo.â†µâ†µ
8 p.m., FSN Detroit, FSN Southwest: Tigers at Rangers. Don't look now, but Detroit is sneaking up on first place in the AL Central. Phil Coke faces Alexi Ogando; if Ogando keeps up what he's doing, he could wind up the AL starter in the All-Star Game.â†µâ†µ
10 p.m., Sun Sports, FSN West: Rays at Angels. This is your sole late-night (in the East) or prime time in the West selection today, and it features a marquee pitching matchup: James Shields vs. Jered Weaver.
