Dogs Can't Tell Its Tuesday

Last night's prenamed triumphant return turned out to be fairly benign with a 1.48 unit loss on the Marlins and a 2 unit win on the Angels, a solid top play winner muted by a loss on chalk. The leans performed adequately, with the Padres winning, the Oakland-KC game going over the posted total, and the Dodgers losing to the Snakes in extra innings. Still, I felt like I had a nice bead on some of those games yesterday, and perhaps September will bring more success.

NL
Ryan Church and Martin Prado
- Church is a beefy 9-for-19 in his career of Anibal Sanchez, and Prado is 5-for-10, though he missed the meetings earlier this season.
Ryan Doumit - Doumit has only 5 career AB against Justin Lehr, but he's got 4 hits in those trips, including a homer, with a 3 RBI.
Five Angry BearCubs - The Cubbies have thoroughly trounced Brian Moehler this season, hitting him at a .429 clip and an ERA near 14 -- Mike Fontenot is 5-for-12 with a homer, Kosuke Fukudome is 5-for-14, Derrek Lee is 7-for-17 with 3 homers, Aramis Ramirez is 6-for-15 with 5 RBI, and Alfonso Soriano is hitting .364.
Joel Pineiro - Still unbeaten since late June, Pineiro beat the Brewers earlier this year, allowing a single run over 9 strong innings.
Todd Helton - Helton is 2-for-2 off Pelfrey this year, and 4-for-5 overall, though his teammates have accomplished very little against the hard-throwing righty.
Orlando Hudson - Hudson is a powerhouse 4-for-7 off Yusmeiro Petit, with 2 of those hits leaving the yard.

AL
Lyle Overbay
- The second game of a Jays/Rangers double-header has Overbay potentially in line to face Brandon McCarthy, against whom Overbay is 4-for-7.
Shin-Soo Choo & Travis Hafner - Edwin Jackson has handled most of the Indians with aplomb, but Choo is 6-for-12, and Hafner 4-for-9 against him.
Luke Scott - The story in this O's/Yanks game may actually be the solid work of the starters, though Scott is 5-for-10 of A.J. Burnett with a homer.
J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell & Jason Varitek - I don't know which of these guys will be playing for Boston tonight, but all three have good numbers against Andy Sonnanstine, with Drew at 5-for-13, Lowell is batting .412 in 17 AB, and Tek is 6-for-13. Varitek and Drew have both homered off Sonnanstine.
Jason Bartlett, Akinori Iwamura & Evan Longoria - Again, not sure all 3 will be in the starting lineup given Ben Zobrist's monster season, but Bartlett is 9-for-20 off Jon Lester, Iwamura is 8-for-21 with a homer, and Longoria is 5-for-15 with a dinger and 4 RBI.
2.5 Twins - Yes, that means 5 people. Get it? Michael Cuddyer, Brendan Harris, Jason Kubel, Joe Mauer & Justin Morneau have all tattooed John Danks, though he's pitched better against this quintet this year, aside from Cuddyer.
