A look at whats happening all around the majors Friday:---PITCHING INTwo of the NLs ERA leaders square off when the Cubs Jason Hammel (7-4, 2.58) faces the Mets Jacob deGrom (3-4, 2.67). Hammel has lost three of his past four starts despite a 3.70 ERA, including a hard-luck 6-1 loss to Miami last time out in which Hammel allowed two runs in six innings. Luck hasnt been on deGroms side, either. The right-hander hasnt won since April 30, and New York lost 1-0 to Julio Teheran and the Braves in his last start.RELIEF NEEDEDAfter losing two straight to the Yankees on game-ending plays in the ninth inning, the Rangers and their struggling bullpen continue a 10-game road trip at Minnesota. Texas leads the majors with nine walk-off defeats, and no other team had more than five entering Thursday. Despite boasting the best record in the AL, Texas has the highest bullpen ERA (4.88) in the league. Despite all of that, the Rangers are an impressive 17-6 in one-run games.NO PLACE LIKE HOMECorey Seager and the Dodgers begin a season-high 10-game homestand with three games against the Rockies. Los Angeles banged-up rotation took another hit Thursday with news that Clayton Kershaw was headed for the disabled list , and newly acquired Bud Norris is expected to start the opener against Colorado. The Dodgers have been buoyed in the meantime by blossoming shortstop Corey Seager, who hit .337 with seven home runs and a 1.053 OPS in June.POWERLESS ANGELSThe Angels are 32-47 entering a three-game series in Boston, putting them on pace for the worst record in franchise history. Manager Mike Scioscia held a closed-door meeting after the team lost for the ninth time in 10 games Wednesday, and although everybody described the meeting as relatively upbeat, the Angels didnt emerge with any big ideas on how to slow a season going south. Among the reasons for Los Angeles struggles: the Angels rank in the bottom third of the AL in home runs and slugging percentage. We know weve seen some guys performing at their absolute worst for the first half, and we know theyre better than that, Scioscia said. Thats going to be our goal, to get those guys going in the right direction. ... I dont think these guys are taking losing in stride. I think thats a positive.WELCOME BACKAnthony DeSclafani (2-0, 1.52) looks for another solid start in a game against the Nationals.
