Daisuke Matsuzaka tossed seven scoreless innings against the Braves on Monday but settled for a no-decision when the bullpen coughed up the win. He gave up six hits and two walks while striking out three.
Dice-K rebounded from a pair of disastrous starts in which he allowed 10 earned runs in 11 innings to throw what is easily his best game of the year. But before you go getting too excited, understand that these decent outings are so few and far between that you run a huge risk when you consider streaming him against anyone. Not to mention the low strikeout rate and the continued high number of walks. He'll get a start against the Marlins before the All Star break, but that match-up just doesn't look good.ANALYST: Howard Bender
