Today's Preview
Cricket is back! Plus some soccer, and the usual American sports.

The Deccan Chargers take on the Chennai Super Kings at Buffalo Park in East London, South Africa. Early Streakers are siding with the Chargers, but it's the Super Kings that lead the IPL in Net RR.

With most of the major European soccer leagues taking Monday off, the Streak looks to Italy for rare Serie B action. Bari hosts Empoli; the travelers get the draw.

Monday Night Baseball - Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees
It's the most famous rivalry in MLB history. The BoSox make their first trip to the newest Yankee Stadium where they'll face a scuffling Yankee squad still waiting for Alex Rodriguez. Catch the action at 7 p.m. on ESPN.

No rest for the weary - the Celtics are back on the court for the second round of the NBA playoffs. They host the Orlando Magic who expect to be without injured guard Courtney Lee.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers laid an egg on Sunday as huge favorites let them down. They finished at 35 percent, and it would have been even worse had not both Athletic Bilbao and the Seattle Mariners made unlikely late comebacks.
