2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 2-1. ’08: 52-30 (63.4%)

NATS at ROCKIES (J. Lannan vs J. De La Rosa)

The Rockies are on the rise in the NL West and far better at Coors than away. Washington’s John Lannan is one hard luck pitcher, owning a 6-11 record despite a 3.61 ERA. ROCKIES.

ORIOLES at ANGELS (L. Cormier vs J. Garland)

The Birds will be a big dog, but don’t be discouraged. The Halos could be flat after their playoff-type matchups at Boston and New York. ORIOLES.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last wk: 0-3. ’08: 45-36 (55.6%)

MARLINS at PHILLIES (J. Johnson vs J. Moyer)

It’s hard to go against a perfect pitcher, which in the case of Philadelphia’s ageless lefty Jamie Moyer is a 10-0 lifetime record against Florida. Plus, Moyer is 2-0 in his last three starts. PHILS.

BREWERS at REDS (D. Bush vs E. Volquez)

Milwaukee starter Dave Bush has a 14.24 ERA against Cincinnati. Edinson Volquez is 6-1 at Great American Ballpark. REDS... Bonus: WHITE SOX.
