Tim Lincecum was awful, allowing eight runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three batters over 4.1 innings against the Reds on Tuesday.
After cruising through his previous four starts (6 ER), Lincecum took two steps backwards in his worst start of the season. He is now 4-4 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through his first 12 starts, but has managed to strikeout just under one batter per inning thus far (8.91 K/9). As long as you have inning-eating pitchers to keep both your ERA and WHIP in check, Lincecum makes for a solid contributor in the strikeout category if nothing else. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Mets on Sunday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jeff Samardzija will start on Tuesday for the White Sox.
The riots in Baltimore were deemed bad enough that tonight's game should be postponed. Regular starters Ubaldo Jimenez and Samardzija will be the starters for tomorrow's contest. Owners of Samardzija need to keep in mind that he will likely miss an upcoming start due to his role in the brawl with the Kansas City Royals. Analysis: Colby Conway
