Today's Preview
PGA golf, prime time tennis, night baseball, and preseason NFL spice up Friday.

David Toms takes on Phil Mickelson in a nine-hole matchup to start our day. Phil is heavily favored, so we're giving Toms the tie.

For the afternoon tee times, we've matched new sensation Rory McIlroy against veteran Jim Furyk. The youngster gets the tie in this matchup.

After they've finished, Streakers can chance a one-hole prop for Tiger Woods: what will he score on the par-5 15th hole?

ATP Rogers Cup - Andy Roddick vs. Novak Djokovic
Defining the term "true to form", the eight highest-ranked players in the world have all made the quarterfinals of the Rogers Cup. Now they face each other, and the Streak's most anticipated matchup is between #4 Djokovic and #5 Roddick. So far Streakers are casting their lots with the American - the contest will be broadcast live on ESPN2.

There are two top pitching matchups tonight - Dodgers stud rookie Clayton Kershaw goes against D-Back Dan Haren, and Blue Jay Doc Halladay visits James Shields and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Yesterday's Results
Another day, another 60 percent mark. The Streak was on top for a while, but the Streakers turned it around behind a Mickelson par and the reigning Super Bowl champions.
