3. Cole Hamels, Philadelphia, 17 wins (T4), 3.05 ERA (T4), 216 Ks (2), 3.33 Spahn Average

4. Chris Sale, Chicago White Sox, 17 wins (T4), 3.05 ERA (T4), 192 Ks (6), 4.66 Spahn Average
Allowed five earned runs on Saturday against the Rays. He is set up to face Detroit's Justin Verlander in Game 163 if the Tigers and White Sox finish in a tie for the AL Central title.
5. Clayton Kershaw, L.A. Dodgers, 13 wins (T12), 2.58 ERA (2), 221 Ks (1), 5 Spahn Average
Nearly unhittable Friday against the hapless Rockies. Hip injury seems to be just a minor hiccup.
