Today's Preview: Welcome to the weekend, streakers! Things start to get interesting at 1:05 p.m. with a pitcher prop featuring Paul Maholm of the 'fire sale' Pirates against Ted Lilly of the Cubs. On the road this year, Maholm is giving up an average of 6.7 hits per game while Lilly gives up only 5.4 hits per game at Wrigley. The Nationwide Series is in Montreal today where Jacques Villeneuve is looking to make a statement on his home track. We put him up against the always consistent Carl Edwards. At 3:55, Junior Griffey is in the middle of his first series in a White Sox uniform, so we had to get him some action on our board. We put him up against Kyle Davies in a total bases vs. strikeouts matchup. Davies only has a total of 30 strikeouts in his 11 starts this season, therefore Griffey looks like a good pick here. Two of the best fireballers in baseball take the hill in Houston at 7:05 with Johan Santana squaring off against Roy Oswalt in a strikeout battle. Before you head out to the clubs, make sure you check out our last matchup of the day with two MLS squads kicking it on the pitch. The Columbus Crew gets the draw even though they have a better record then the Houston Dynamo. But, Vegas is loving Houston at home, and we plays odds over records here at Streak headquarters. Best Bets: Lilly, Edwards, Santana, and Dynamo.

Yesterday's Notes: Another solid day of streaking with the overall winning PCT at 70.9%. We have our first 10-game streaker since July 24th, and today could big a big day for our leaders at the top as they inch closer to the magic number of 15. Big winners of the day were the Giants, Rays and Jimmy Walker, who took down Ms.Wie as she failed to make the cut in Reno. Also, Soriano and Lithuania disappointed a good amount of streakers whom both had over 80% of users taking them over their opponents.
