CHICAGO (AP) — Boston's Clay Buchholz will try to become baseball's third seven-game winner of the season tonight when the Red Sox face the Twins in Minneapolis. Buchholz, who is 6-0 with a 1.69 ERA, would equal Tampa Bay's Matt Moore and Washington's Jordan Zimmerman as baseball's only seven-game winners.

The Reds are currently the hottest team in baseball with a seven-game winning streak. They face the Phillies tonight in Philadelphia.

Overall, 15 games are taking place today with the lone interleague contest being played in Pittsburgh as the Pirates entertain the Astros.
