The combination of interleague play and the unbalanced schedule has resulted in seeing interdivisional foes for only two series a season. It's mind-boggling that a team you might be competing against for a Wild Card spot might only have to play six games against you that season while you play the same number of games against a National League "rival."

Jason Michaels has been activated for today's game, and will be hitting seventh. Franklin Gutierrez is on the bench, and Ryan Garko has been sent to Buffalo.
