5:34 PM ET: Cubs Squeak By The Phillies, Streak Master Is Struggling
The leaderboard almost got shaken up after the Cubs barely got by the Phillies. Harden only had 5 strikeouts to the Phillies 6 hits which gives the Streak Master my first losing streak. Thank goodness it's the weekend! Enjoy the beginning of college football!

The Streak Master has been struggling as of late.

11:06 AM ET: Streak Master Chats, Vijay Loses to Sergio.
Yes everyone, I am pounding my head on my desk as we speak. I really cannot believe Sergio pulled it out against Vijay. SRudnicki1 is now at 9 and made me look bad in the chat this morning, because I picked Vijay to his Sergio. Keep Streaking everybody, while I need to see Dr. James Andrews to get my skills back. By the way, this morning's chat was very successful. Thank you for the "interesting" questions and Keep hounding the Buzz Master to let me back on next week!

Today's Preview
The PGA Tour makes its debut on the board this morning with red-hot Vijay Singh going up against Sergio Garcia at 8:22 a.m. Both are considered front runners to win the tournament, therefore it should be a close one. Defending champion, Phil Mickelson takes on Anthony Kim at 1:07 p.m. with Phil getting the slight advantage here, but with the first 9 holes, anything can happen. A few MLB matchups follow golf with odds favoring the Cubs, Red Sox, Mets and Dodgers. On ESPN at 8:00 p.m. we have a Friday night lights battle featuring SMU +3.5 @ Rice followed by the always unpredictable NFL preseason to finish the day off. Don't forget to chat with the Streak Master this morning at 10 a.m.

MLB PHI @ CHC: Which side will record a HIGHER total in the game?
Rich Harden has been pitching fantastic lately with 21 strikeouts in his past 2 starts so look for him to continue that trend. If the Phillies can overcome their 2 game losing streak they should have a shot to win this matchup but I like Harden here.

Yesterday's Notes: The winning PCT is back to where I like to see it, 41.6%. The percentage is low thanks to the Stanford Cardinal who took down the favorite, Oregon State. 95% of entries took the Beavers in the 9:00 p.m. matchup, including yours truly. The top streak extenders for the day were the Silver Stars who really took it to the Phoenix Mercury in their first game back, and the Cubs who scored 5 runs in the eighth inning to top the Phillies. We have a lone leader at the top, with SRudnicki1 sitting at 8.
