2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last week: 2-1, 2009 record: 19-22

REDS AT BREWERS (5:05 p.m.)

Brew Crew has everything – beer, hitting and below average pitching. The Reds can pitch, but can’t hit their way out of a paper bag. Manny Parra should be able to handle Cincy. BREWERS.

ORIOLES at RANGERS (5:05 p.m.)

Brandon McCarthy was treated to heavy run support in his first start for Texas and should get the same here. The Rangers should feast on Baltimore pitcher Alfredo Simon, who was hit hard in his first start. RANGERS. Bonus: Tampa Bay Rays.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last week: 2-1, 2009 record: 24-18

REDS at BREWERS (5:05 p.m.)

Counterpoint. Manny Parra was bombed in his only outing and has a lifetime 8.27 ERA against the Reds. Meanwhile Bronson Arroyo is 7-5 against Milwaukee and 2-1 in Miller Park. Plus Arroyo can hit! REDS.

CARDINALS at D’BACKS (6:40 p.m.)

The second start for Chris Carpenter who tossed a 1-hitter over 7 in his first start off two years of injuries. Also, Carp is 3-0 lifetime at Arizona. D’backs starter Max Scherzer has never won at his home park. CARDINALS... Bonus: Texas Rangers.
