A look at whats happening all around the majors Tuesday:---THE BIG 2-0Toronto lefty J.A. Happ goes for his 20th win when he starts at Seattle in a game between teams competing for the two AL wild cards. Before this season, Happs career high for wins was 12 with Philadelphia in 2009. The 33-year-old Happ (19-4, 3.27 ERA) starts against 35-year-old Mariners righty Hisashi Iwakuma (16-11, 3.87).CALIFORNIA RIVALRYRich Hill and the Dodgers try to move closer to an NL West crown when they host Johnny Cueto and the second-place Giants. Cueto (16-5, 2.86 ERA) pitched a five-hitter and retired his final 17 batters last Thursday in a clutch performance against St. Louis. Hill is 3-1 with a 1.48 ERA in four starts for Los Angeles since arriving in a trade with Oakland.ZEROS FOR THE OSKevin Gausman (8-10, 3.43 ERA) looks for another dominant outing against the Red Sox while the Orioles try to gain ground in the AL East. The 25-year-old outpitched Cy Young Award contender Rick Porcello over eight innings in a 1-0 win last Wednesday and has held opponents scoreless in four of his past five starts. Eduardo Rodriguez (2-7, 4.98) has a 3.25 ERA in 11 starts since a returning from a midseason demotion to Triple-A.A LIFT FROM LESTERCubs lefty Jon Lester (17-4, 2.40 ERA) has thrown 17 consecutive scoreless innings, a streak hell try to stretch against the Reds. Last time out, Lester pitched eight innings in a 7-0 win over the Cardinals. The 32-year-old All-Star has forced his way into the NL Cy Young Award conversation by going 8-1 with a 1.02 ERA over his past nine starts for playoff-bound Chicago.TOUGHER THAN THEY LOOKThough it might seem the wild card-contending Mets have an easy opponent in last-place Atlanta, theyve actually got their hands full. Pitching for the Braves is All-Star righty Julio Teheran, who threw a one-hit shutout at Citi Field on Fathers Day. He ran his scoreless streak against New York to 29 2/3 innings before giving up Curtis Grandersons home run Sept. 9.The Mets also must deal with longtime nemesis Freddie Freeman, who went 4 for 5 with a homer and three RBI during Atlantas victory over Noah Syndergaard in the series opener Monday night. Freeman has a 23-game hitting streak and has reached base safely in 39 straight.TRY AGAINJames Shields is 0-5 with a 9.37 ERA in his past nine starts for the White Sox.

That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory.If they say offence wins games and defence wins championships, the Alouettes may be alright come November. But its July and the season has gotten off on the wrong foot for Montreals offence. On the other side of the ball, despite a 1-2 record, the defence can say they are doing their job. The last two weeks Noel Thorpes crew has given up only three touchdowns -- two goal-line QB sneaks against Winnipeg and a tipped ball that landed in the hands of Nik Lewis versus Calgary. "I love my defense; we knew going into camp we were going to be a scrappy physical bunch," defensive lineman John Bowman said. The unit is led by Thorpe, the Alouettes defensive coordinator. Hired prior to Marc Trestman leaving to become head coach of the Chicago Bears, Thorpes previous positions included stops at the Université de Montreal where he was the defensive coordinator and in Edmonton as the special teams coordinator for the Eskimos. Early on he has earned instant respect from his players including defensive back Byron Parker. "Our front seven is playing amazing football right now," Parker said. "Hats off to the front line, coach Thorpe is calling a great game." In three games Montreal has four interceptions, seven fumble recoveries and 14 sacks. The high-level play of the defence has only increased the pressure on the underperforming offfence.dddddddddddd. However, Parker dismissed any concern the team had for its offensive leader, Anthony Calvillo. "Im not worried about AC, hes a living legend," Parker said. Fellow defensive back Geoff Tisdale echoed Parkers sentiments about the rest of the offence. "Were a team, were a family, we got to stick together," Tisdale said. "We are built to get the ball back for our offence, thats what we are going to do every game." The Alouettes are refusing to hit the panic button, realizing there were similar concerns last season about the early struggles of the defence and they were able to turn things around. "We are going to get it together, its an 18-game season, we have seven more home games and we are going to take it one game at a time," Parker said. Although the Als defence looks like it is championship caliber, the offence needs to step up in a rematch with the Stampeders this Saturday in Calgary and prove it can win a game. Notes: Last week vs. the Stamps, Montreal had six penalties of at least 15 yards…Nik Lewis had as many second down conversions as the Alouettes had as a team…The Als Defense limited the Stampeders to three field goals and one touchdown in four trips to the redzone… Montreal only had one trip to the redzone and it came on their opening drive.
