Rangers pitcher Derek Holland, who threw seven shutout innings in the 4-2 win over the Cubs, is Tuesday's Player of the Day.
Padres pitcher Jason Marquis, who gave up one run over 7 2/3 innings in the 9-2 win over the Dodgers, is National League Player of the Day.
Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers, who went 3-for-5 with a homer and 4 RBIs in the 6-2 win over the Mariners, is AL Batter of the Day.
Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, who went 3-for-4 in the 9-8 win over the Mets in 10 innings in the second game of a doubleheader, is NL Batter of the Day.
One game, the Phillies at the Reds was suspended in a 0-0 tie in the ninth inning because of heavy rain. It is set to resume Wednesday. Currently, Reds pitcher Homer Bailey has the highest Box-Toppers score of any player in the game—he pitched eight innings, gave up two hits, no runs, no walks and struck out 10. That would give him a Box-Toppers score of 16 and would likely make him Player of Game—if the Reds win. If the game is indeed concluded Wednesday, whoever is named Player of the Game will be included in Wednesday's Box-Toppers results. And if the Reds win, it seems likely Bailey, with his high Box-Toppers score, may be Wednesday's Player of the Day, even though he did all his pitching on Tuesday.
Holland receives 2.0 Box-Toppers points for being named Player of the Day. Marquis receives 1.7 for NL Player of the Day. Cabrera receives 1.5 points for AL Batter of the Day. Gonzalez receives 1.5 points for NL Batter of the Day.
