Around the Horn - 8-5

Chase Utley's hitting streak ended at 35 consecutive games last night. Utley went 0-5 against the Mets at Shea Stadium. He falls 3 games short of the team record set earlier this year by teammate Jimmy Rollins. Rollins' 38 game streak carried over from last season.

Reports had Andruw Jones claimed by several team on waivers and the Braves trying to work out a deal with one of them. The Braves have steadfastly denied they are dealing Jones who becomes a 10 and 5 player this month.

Javy Lopez was behind the plate a little earlier than expected for the Boston Red Sox. Starting catcher Doug Mirabelli turned his ankle in last night's game and had to leave. He's listed as day-to-day and will be re-evaluated to see if a DL stint in necessary. Corky Miller is expected to be called up today as Lopez's backup.
