8:55 AM ET: Cole Hamels/Scott Kazmir Prop Corrected
My apologies to Streakers who picked Hamels as the winner and lost their streaks temporarily. This issue has now been fixed and all streaks should be intact. Thank you all for being patient and letting us know the error, keep streaking!

Today's Preview
The Open tees off at 9:45 a.m. ET with Rocco Mediate facing Ryan Moore in a first-round matchup. This is followed by defending champion Mike Weir taking on Aaron Baddeley at 2:48 p.m. ET.

The UEFA Cup continues at noon ET with Deportivo La Coruna at CSKA Moscow. The road team received the draw. Aston Villa at 3:15 p.m. ET looks to use the home crowd to their advantage when they host Ajax Amsterdam.

For Game 2 of the World Series, I put both starting pitchers in a "more strikeouts" matchup with James Shields getting the slight edge at home.

Lastly, the MLS is on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. ET for "MLS Primetime Thursday." Chicago hosts the New York Red Bulls, with the visitors receiving the draw.

NHL favorites of the night: New York Islanders, Nashville Predators, and the Colorado Avalanche.

World Series, Game 2: Philadelphia Phillies at Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays look to James Shields to even up the series at the Trop. Tampa Bay is favored at minus-148 and I think they will hit Brett Myers hard, they are too good to lose both games at home. Look for a 6-2 Rays victory and a tied series heading to Philly.

Yesterday's Results:
I guess Streakers didn't want to take my advice as the Tampa Bay Rays were the day's top streak breakers. The overall winning percentage was 50.5 percent, just an average day for Streakers. Lastly, our leader, shamrockbell is still at 15 wins in a row.
