2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last week: 0-3, 2009: 19-25 (.432)


The Pirates are playing tough in the early part, but nobody is playing better than the Marlins. Florida starter Anibal Sanchez (1-0, 1.64 ERA) faces Jeff Karstans who is 0-5 at Pittsburgh. MARLINS.

BRAVES at NATIONALS (4:05 p.m.)

And, nobody is playing worse than Washington. The Nats may still be shellshocked after giving away all 3 games to Florida. The Braves get Chipper Jones back in the lineup to face Shairon Martis. Who? BRAVES. Bonus: Blue Jays.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last week: 1-2, 2009: 25-20 (.556)

TIGERS at ANGELS (7:05 p.m.)

Detroit starter Armando Gallaraga has been super (2-0, 0.68 ERA) so far and owns a 1.88 ERA against the Angels in his last 3 matchups. Jered Weaver is 19-9 lifetime with a 3.36 ERA lifetime at the Big A. UNDER.

TWINS at RED SOX (4:05 p.m.)

Boston is on a 5-game win streak after Monday’s 12-1 rout of Baltimore. Tim Wakefield is 13-5 lifetime vs Minnesota throwing that knuckler. Scott Baker has been torched early on (0-1, 13.50 ERA). That’s not good. RED SOX... Bonus: Indians.
