Weather to watch

Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves: A 30 percent chance of an isolated thunderstorm throughout the afternoon hours.

New York Mets at Washington Nationals: A 30 percent chance of showers with the threat of precipitation increasing throughout the afternoon.

Who’s hot?

The Tampa Bay Rays have won three straight after dropping consecutive contests to the Mariners. The Rays are the hottest team in baseball with 10 victories over their last 12 games.

Who’s not?

Houston Astros manager Brad Mills was fired by general manager Jeff Luhnow after a 12-4 defeat to the Diamondbacks on Saturday night. The Astros have plummeted to a league worst 39-82 campaign in the third year of Mills’ tenure, which has failed to produce a winning record.

Key stat

11-0: Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto’s record during day games this season.

Game of the day

Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels (-144, 7.5)

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo left Saturday’s preseason game against the Bears in the first quarter with an injury to the pectoral muscle. Orakpo suffered the same injury last season and will undergo an MRI later on Sunday.

Notable quotable

"I don't know. It's interesting. I don't have the pulse on this game. What was it exactly? Us? Them? Some crazy, wild calls. Were they accurate? Weren't they? We'll see. I have a headache (from yelling) though. I have a darned headache. A lot them (the calls) didn't seem like they were in the ballpark." 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh on the performance of NFL replacement officials after a 20-9 loss to Houston on Saturday.

Betting news and notes

The Texas Rangers are only 19-21 since July 1 and have been outscored 197-171 in that span.

The Tampa Bay Rays have won five straight against the Angels and outscored them 34-11 during that span.

The New York Yankees have hit 29 home runs in 11 games against the Red Sox this season. Curtis Granderson has gone deep in each of the first two games of the current series.

Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford would like to have surgery on his left elbow as early as next week, according to reports out of Boston. Crawford has batted .283 in 30 games since coming off the disabled list on July 16, but is playing with pain in his ailing elbow.
