Cubs pitcher Scott Feldman is Monday's Player of the Day. Feldman pitched seven shutout innings and gave up only two hits in the 9-2 win over the Rangers.
White Sox pitcher Chris Sale is American League Player of the Day. Sale gave up only one run over 7 1/3 innings against the Royals. He left the game with the Sox trailing 1-0 and so was not eligible for the win. However, the White Sox came back to tie the game in the top of the ninth and won the game 2-1 in the 11th inning.
Andrelton Simmons of the Braves is National League Batter of the Day. Simmons hit two home runs and went 3-for-4 in the 7-4 win over the Reds. It is Simmons' Box-Toppers debut, the first time he has been Player of the Game, and he is the 3,165th player to debut in Box-Toppers since 1995.
Stephen Drew of the Red Sox is American League Batter of the Day. Drew went 4-for-5, homered, and hit a walk-off RBI double in the 11th inning to beat the Twins 6-5.
Feldman receives 2.0 Box-Toppers points for being named Player of the Day. Sale receives 1.7 for AL Player of the Day. Simmons and Drew receive 1.5 each for being top Batter of the Day in their league.
