1. Telling start. Ubaldo Jimenez has spent most of this season floundering, but he's coming off maybe the best start of his career -- eight two-hit scoreless innings where he struck out eight and walked one. Two starts earlier, he allowed two runs in seven innings in his return to the rotation. In between, he gave up nine runs in 2 1/3 innings. Did Jimenez figure some things out his last start or was it a blip? Today could be telling.
