A look at what’s happening all around the majors today:

___

HAM IT UP

Cubs righty Jason Hammel is 9-0 in 11 career starts vs. Washington. He’ll try to add to his streak when he faces the Nationals at Wrigley Field.

NICE PRICE

Red Sox newcomer David Price is 4-0 in six starts despite a 6.14 ERA. He beat the Yankees last weekend, and tries to do it again in a rematch with Nathan Eovaldi in the Bronx.

FEELING BETTER?

The Cardinals will check on Carlos Martinez, a day after he left his start vs. Pittsburgh in the fourth inning because of fatigue.

Martinez gave up a run in 3 1/3 innings and 29 of his 52 pitches were strikes.

MAYBE

The Royals will see whether third baseman Mike Moustakas is able to start at Cleveland. He was a late scratch from the lineup Friday night because of a sore left thumb. He missed two starts earlier this week against Washington because of the same problem.

TRY AGAIN

Toronto knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is 0-3 with a 5.79 ERA in his last five starts. He hopes to end the streak against the visiting Dodgers, who send ace Clayton Kershaw to the mound.
