OVERFLOWIN PART A
This is an interesting matchup of two pitchers that have turned their seasons around lately after they started terribly. In his four starts since May 22, Matsuzaka is 3-1 with a 1.98 ERA, and of course, Hammel is 4-0 with a 0.78 ERA in five starts since then. Both pitchers are not this good, so it could be that either or both are in for a bit of a regression tonight. Hammel's got a 26.1 scoreless inning streak, a shutout tonight will break the Rockies record set by Ubaldo Jimenez earlier this year.
