It's an overcast, gloomy day...cubelife and TPS reports are less than 24 hours away...why not hole up inside and watch sports all day. Yeah, that's the ticket...
Washington Nationals vs. Arizona Diamondbacks: The Nationals offense has dried up in the desert sun. Washington's bats have been dormant for two straight games, last scoring a run against the Diamondbacks in the ninth inning of Thursday night's game. Jim Riggleman sends veteran Jason Marquis to the mound, looking to stop an Arizona team that has now won 18 of their last 22 games. (MASN2, 4:10 P.M.)
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles: Baltimore looks to win back-to-back games for the first time since May 26th, but will have to defeat a Toronto ballclub that has owned them to the tune of 16 wins in the last 20 contests between the two teams. Jo-Jo Reyes, no longer the poster boy for pitching futility, takes the hill for Toronto, facing off against Baltimore's Jeremy Guthrie. (MASN, 1:35 P.M.)
Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks, Game 3: Can the Heat get over their epic collapse in Game 2? American Airlines Center will be rocking as Dirk Nowitzki and company return home, the series now tied at one game apiece after the Mavs heroics in the final seven minutes of the Finals second game. (ABC, 8:00 P.M.)
