What we're watching: Beckett goes for 12th win

Jul 21, 2009, 5:07 PM EDT

- Sinkerballer Sergio Mitre, who underwent Tommy John surgery last
year, will make his Yankees debut against the Orioles after going 3-1
with a 2.40 ERA in seven starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He
was 10-23 with a 5.36 ERA in 52 starts and 26 relief appearances for
the Cubs and Marlins from 2003-07. If he succeeds in his first couple
of starts, it will relieve any pressure on the Yankees to out Phil
Hughes back into the rotation.

- Josh Beckett will aim for fifth straight win while pitching on
eight days’ rest against the Rangers. The Red Sox opted to give both he
and Tim Wakefield additional time off even though neither ended up
working in the All-Star Game. Beckett, who could become the AL’s first
12-game winner, will be opposed by Tommy Hunter, who is 1-1 with a 1.53
ERA in three starts since being recalled at the end of last month.

Game of the Night

Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelphia – It’ll be up to Rich Harden to halt
the Phillies’ nine-game winning streak. He’s coming off one of his best
starts, having allowed just one unearned run and three hits over six
innings against the Nationals last time out. While his season ERA
stands at 5.06, he’s 4-1 with a 2.17 ERA outside of Wrigley Field. The
Phillies, though, have been far better at home lately after getting off
to a surprisingly awful start at Citizens Bank Park. They’re 10-1 in
Philadelphia this month. Joe Blanton will start for the Phillies.
