2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 3-0, 2009: 36-32 (52.9%)

REDS AT BLUE JAYS (4:05 PT: Owings vs Mills)

The Jays are back home at Rogers Centre, where they have been tough. Brad Mills makes just his second major league start for Toronto. Micah Owings hits better than he throws. BLUE JAYS.

ORIOLES AT MARLINS (4:10 PT: Uehara v Miller)

Good spot for the Fish, catching Baltimore off that improbable 3-game sweep of the Phils in Philadelphia. Koji Uehara is just 2-4 on the season, while Andrew Miller (pictured) is 5-4 lifetime at Landshark Stadium. MARLINS… Bonus: Boston Red Sox.

2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last week: 2-1, 2009: 41-30 (57.7%)

CUBS AT TIGERS (4:05 PT: Zambrano v Jackson)

Both Carlos Zambrano and Edwin Jackson have been solid over the past few weeks and Comerica Park is a pitchers’ yard. Both the Cubbies and Detroit have played well of late so we can expect a close game. UNDER.

ROYALS AT ASTROS (Greinke vs Ortiz)

This would have been solidly for Greinke, but not now. Zack is 0-2 with a 5.88 ERA in his last 3, while Ortiz (pictured) has come out of nowhere to post a 1.80 ERA in his last 3. And, Russ is 7-2 lifetime at Minute Maid. ASTROS... Bonus: Indians/Pirates OVER.
