Monday Monday
A quiet day after a busy weekend. With most sports off, the Streak relies heavily on baseball.

In England they prefer cricket, so we begin our morning in Nottingham with a Twenty20 match between Australia and Sri Lanka. Look for the men from Down Under to use offspinner Nathan Hauritz in an effort to stem their current losing streak.

The Tigers and the White Sox play an afternoon game - scheduled pitchers are Galarraga and Richard. The teams' offenses are moving in opposite directions, as Detroit's bats have been getting busy while Chicago's lie dormant.

Monday Night Baseball - Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees
The Rays and the Yankees have developed quite the rivalry over the last couple seasons. ESPN's coverage comes to you at 7 p.m. from the home run haven also known as new Yankee Stadium.

Our night ends on the West Coast where the Diamondbacks and Padres both must recover from Sunday's 18-inning marathon.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers dipped below the break-even point when their preferred choice Dwight Howard was outscored by Pau Gasol in Sunday night's OT thriller. The Florida Gators were another disappointment, although the North Carolina Tar Heels provided some consolation as they easily swept ECU on their way to the CWS.
