Everything you've come to expect, following the jump.

Yovani Gallardo (12-7, 3.64), since August 8 (seven starts), has a 6.48 ERA and an opponent batting line of .282/.355/.466. His last start out, though, he went seven innings without giving up a run, striking out 6. On the season, Gallardo has a 3.02 FIP, a 3.44 xFIP, a 3.90 tRA and has already been worth 4.3 WAR pitching this year.

Tim Lincecum (14-9, 3.60) has won the NL Cy Young two years running. Being the intelligent baseball fans you are, you probably know all you need to about the man they call "The Freak".

Lineup:
2B Rickie Weeks
RF Corey Hart
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
3B Casey McGehee
CF Carlos Gomez
SS Alcides Escobar
C Jonathan Lucroy
RHP Yovani Gallardo
