The final full set of Interleague games is on tap for this weekend, and barring a huge weekend from the National League, 2009 will go down as another that favors the Junior Circuit.

American League teams own a 113-92 record in Interleague play so far, with the Angels (11-4), the Rays (10-5) and the Twins (10-5) having all won at least 10 games heading into their final series'.

This weekend offers intense regional rivalry matchups in Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, and Tampa, plus a straight N.L. battle between the top two teams in the wildcard race.
