by Dirty on September 7, 2009

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Rays and Yankees play a doubleheader in New York, and the Seminoles begin their season with a game against Miami.

Colliding on the gridiron . . .

College football finishes off their first week of action on Monday with a pair of games: Cincinnati at Rutgers, and Miami at No. 18 Florida State. The Scarlet Knights are pegged as 5-point favorites in the Big East matchup, with the total sitting at 48.5 points. Meanwhile, the ranked Seminoles are listed as 6-point home favorites against the Hurricanes. The total for that game sits at 47.5 points.

As well, the Canadian Football League has a pair of Labour Day contests on tap, with Toronto at Hamilton and Edmonton at Calgary. The Tiger-Cats (4-4 straight-up, 6-2 against-the-spread) are 5.5-point home favorites against the rival Argonauts (2-6 SU, 3-5 ATS) on Monday. Meanwhile, the Stampeders (4-4 SU, 2-6 ATS) sit as 5.5-point home favorites against the Eskimos (5-3 SU, 3-5 ATS).

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The Rays will use Matt Garza (7-9, 4.01 ERA) and Andy Sonnanstine (6-8, 6.62 ERA) in Monday’s road doubleheader, while the Yankees go with A.J. Burnett (10-8, 4.29 ERA) and CC Sabathia (16-7, 3.48 ERA). Lefthander Sabathia has been on a roll for the Yankees, leading the team to victories in each of his last seven trips to the mound. However, Sabathia’s last loss came against the Rays back on July 28, when he allowed five earned runs over his 5 2-3 innings pitched.

Rounding out the American League schedule for Monday: Minnesota at Toronto, the Angels at Kansas City, Texas at Cleveland, and Boston at the White Sox. Josh Beckett (14-5, 3.87 ERA) gets the ball for the BoSox in that last contest; righthander Beckett is 0-1 with three no-decisions over his last four trips to the mound (24 earned runs in 24 1-3 innings). The ChiSox counter with Mark Buehrle (11-7, 3.86 ERA); Buehrle remains winless since his July perfect game.

Over in the National League it’ll be J.A. Happ (10-4, 2.77 ERA) vs. Brian Moehler (8-10, 5.11 ERA) on Monday afternoon as the Phillies play the Astros in Houston. Lefthander Happ is coming off consecutive losses to the Giants and Pirates, allowing seven earned runs over those 14 innings of work. Righthander Moehler took a hard-luck loss against the Cubs in his most recent trip to the mound, surrendering just a single earned run on six hits over 5 1-3 innings in that game.

Elsewhere around the NL on Monday it’s the Cubs at Pittsburgh, Cincinnati at Colorado, the Dodgers at Arizona, San Diego at San Francisco, and St. Louis at Milwaukee. Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter (15-3, 2.28 ERA) will try to pick up his 16th victory of the season in that last contest; righthander Carpenter is 8-0 with two no-decisions over his last 10 outings. Dave Bush (3-6, 6.47 ERA) is slated to pitch for the Brewers; righthander Bush has been bothered by a sore arm lately.
