Bet Jamaica Daily Sports Roundup: September 9

by Dirty on September 9, 2009

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Cards look for a road win in Milwaukee, the Angels host the Mariners, and the Rays close out a road series in New York.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

Adam Wainwright (17-7, 2.68 ERA) will get the ball for the Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon as they take on the Brewers and Jeff Suppan (6-8, 4.97 ERA) in Milwaukee. Righthander Wainwright picked up a shaky win over the Pirates in his last start, allowing six earned runs on nine hits over five innings of work. Righthander Suppan is coming off a no-decision against the Giants in which he surrendered two runs (both unearned) on two hits over his 5 2-3 innings.

Also on the National League schedule for Wednesday: the Cubs at Pittsburgh, San Diego at San Francisco, Florida at the Mets, Atlanta at Houston, Cincinnati at Colorado, the Dodgers at Arizona, and Philadelphia at Washington. Cliff Lee (5-2, 2.81 ERA in the NL) will be looking to snap his two-game losing skid for the Phillies; lefthander Lee has allowed 12 earned runs over his last eight innings of work. Garrett Mock (3-7, 5.63 ERA) will counter for the Nationals on Wednesday.

Over in the American League on Wednesday the Rays and Yankees will finish out their four-game set at Yankee Stadium, with Jeff Niemann (12-5, 3.67 ERA) taking on Joba Chamberlain (8-5, 4.41 ERA). Righthander Niemann allowed just three earned runs over 14 2-3 innings in his last two outings (both against the Tigers), but settled for a no-decision in both starts. Righthander Chamberlain pitched just three innings in each of his last two starts as he rests for the playoffs.

Rounding out the Junior Circuit slate for Wednesday: Texas at Cleveland, Minnesota at Toronto, Baltimore at Boston, Detroit at Kansas City, Oakland at the White Sox, and Seattle at the Angels. Ian Snell (4-1, 4.89 ERA in the AL) will take the mound for the Mariners in that contest; righthander Snell has won each of his last four starts for Seattle. The Angels counter with Jered Weaver (14-5, 3.79 ERA); the righthander held the Royals to one run in seven innings last start.

Tipping off on the hardwood  . . .

Finally, there’s just one game on the WNBA’s schedule for Wednesday, with Detroit at Minnesota. The Shock (16-15 straight-up, 14-15-2 against-the-spread) are gunning for the second seed in the Eastern standings, while the Lynx (13-18 SU, 15-16 ATS) are just trying to push their way into the Western playoff picture in the final week of the regular season. The Lynx and Shock last met on the court on July 31 in Detroit, with the home team pulling out a 91-83 win in that matchup.
