2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 1-2. ’08: 55-32

NATS AT PHILS (Bergmann 2-9 vs Blanton 1-0)

Yeah, the Nats have lost 10 straight but no team this year has dropped 11! Jason Bergmann has pitched better than his record and Joe Blanton has pitched worse than his. NATS +1½.

NATS AT PHILS (WSH 0-10 last 10, PHI 4-6 L10)

This one is so good, we’re betting it twice. This time with the big dog price to win. Philly just isn’t scoring runs and off jet lag from West Coast trip. NATS.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last wk: 2-1. ’08: 48-39 (55.2%)

RED SOX at O’s (Matsuzaka 14-2 vs Cabrera 8-7)

It’s a no-brainer to take Dice K straight up, but would you give $2 to win $1? However, the Red Sox usually win behind Matsuzaka and Daniel Cabrera is 2-10 lifetime against Boston. RED SOX -1½.

ANGELS at RAYS (Santana 13-5 vs Shields 10-7)

Injuries haven’t slowed the Rays and James Shields is 17-7 lifetime at the Juicer. Angels tough, but Ervin Santana is 1-3 at TB. RAYS...Bonus: MARLINS.
