Daily Dosage: Jessica Alba is pretty much flawless

Jessica Alba rocks my socks. She's an OK actress, her best work is behind her (like Dark Angel, yum!) But she could be a terrible actress, she's still delicious and I know many men that would drop their iPods, iPhones and other iThings at her beckon call. Heck, I'd be one of them.

Today's shameless cross-promotion: Members of the SIU football team "switch it up." And by switch it up I mean change positions. And by change positions I mean...hey, quit oggling Ms. Alba! [Daily Egyptian]

And remember visit siuDE.com, just do it and don't ask questions!

Cub slump busters put Pirates in the pits. Kosuke Fukudome and Jim Edmonds combined to go 6-for-9 with five RBIs and two runs scored in the Chicago Cubs' 12-3 victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fukudome, now hitting .268 after hitting in the .100s for most of August, is 4-for-5 in his last two games with a home run and six RBIs.

Ted Lilly pitches seven strong innings, striking out seven while limiting the Bucco's to three runs on seven hits, improving his record to 13-7.

Sox 'split' in B-More, make Thome's Homies proud. Jim Thome belted his 535th career home run, giving him sole possession of 15th place on the all-time home run list, as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 4-3.

Earlier, the Sox and the O's played the end of a suspended game in which the Sox were the home team despite re-starting the game in Baltimore.

Rookie southpaw Clayton Richard pitched six innings of quality baseball, scattering six hits and limiting the Orange & Black attack to only three runs.
