The Cubs have been dominating the National League ever since the All Star Break. They were in first place for less than 24 hours the one day, and are now a half game behind to St. Louis. Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano have been waking up the offense as all three of them have been hitting like crazy. Homeruns, basehits, RBI’s you name it.
Reed Johnson has been placed on the disabled list for a foot fracture. He fouled a ball off of his foot against the Astros game on Wednesday. So that is a minor set back. Geovany Soto’s injury has been a work in progress and he can return as early as next week. Also, Ted Lilly had to go to the disabled list. He had to get knee surgery and it went well.
Ryan Theriot has been hitting well today against the Astros for a make up game. He’s had 3 RBI’s off a triple and a sac fly. Jake Fox and Milton Bradley had back to back jacks. Mike Fontenot had a triple and an RBI. They are winning 10-3 in the TOP 6th. Kevin Hart just retired the side.
Rich Harden got his touch back against the Nationals. He’s been having a rough outing lately, but the Nationals game was a confidence builder for him. They swept the Nationals in a 3 game series.
Randy Wells has been in the talk of “Rookie of the Year”. Yesterday, the Cubs won 12-0. Wells had 1 K, with 5 hits (all singles). There were A LOT of double play balls and easy pop ups and grounders. The defense backed him up as well as the offense. The bats came ALIVE yesterday.
The Cubs are now a half game out of first, St. Louis is in first place. The 1 game out of first for the Wild Card. This is only game 100, there are plenty more to go in this season. If the Cubs keep hitting and making the offense come alive, then they will be plenty fine.
In other news… Mark Buerhle had a Perfect game and set a new record of retiring 45 batters in a row. But yesterday the Sox got swept in the double header against the Twins.
STEROID TALK: It has been given out that Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz were on the PED list back in 2003. The list just keeps on spilling out….
Well, that’s all I got for now. GO CUBS!
Randy Wells is pitching Game 2 of the Double Header! The score is 2-1 at the TOP 5th. Sam Fuld had a nice diving catch an earlier inning before.
He JUST struck out Shumacker. The first out was a force at 2nd from Baker to Theriot, who got Adam Wainwright out, BUT he put his hand UP while sliding to distract Ryan Theriot and Theriot threw it and it HIT the palm of Wainwright’s hand, and it deflected. The ump called him out at 2, but not that interference out. It was interference, he knew Theriot was trying to get that double play. But Hill picked off the runer at 2 the runner (Brendan Ryan) anyway, so it doesnt matter.
Damn Ludwick…. he had a 2 run homer.. 4-1 in the TOP 6th.
WOOOO RBI double in the BOT 6th by Milton Bradley! He scores Aramis Ramirez! 4-2!
They put Sean Marshall in the TOP 9th… then?… now… they’re putting Marshall in LF… taking Soriano out? Then putting Heilman in? WHAT is going on here?? This is the weirdest situation ever Lou! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HEILMAN STRUCK RYAN OUT!!!!! Okay… Lou put Heilman in to strikeout the righty Ryan, but didnt want to take Marshall out of the game. Gotcha. Now he took Heilman out… he put Reed Johnson in LF, and Marshall to pitch. But Tony La Russa is questioning this. SHOOT. La Russa is switching the lefty hitter (Shumaker) and is putting in the righty Jarrett Hoffpauir (they have a Hoffpauir too St. Louis NO relation to Micah). This is weird. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! MARSHALL STRUCK OUT HOFFPAUIR!!!!! 2 OUTS!
HOLY CRAP!!! HOLY CRAP!! HOLY CRAP! REEED JOHNSON GOT THE CATCH!!! HE GOT THE CATCH! THAT WAS THE SICKEST CATCH IVE EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT WAS BETTER THAN ROBBING PRINCE FIELDER OF A GRAND SLAM!!!! HOLY CRUD! THAT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Milton Bradley strikesout. CRUD that was too outside and a little high. GOSH DANG IT Baker strikesout too!!!! That’s too inside! Come on Hoffpauir… 2 outs, we need you.
And of course, Hoffpauir looks at strike 3. SWING THE FRICKEN BAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL 3 OF YOU GUYS WATCHED STRIKE 3 GO BY. GO DOWN SWINGING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DONT WATCH IT WHEN YOU NEED 3 RUNS TO WIN A GAME IN A CLUTCH MOMENT. BLAST IT.. THAT IS MY PET PEEVE.
Randy Wells suffered a tough loss. The Cubs offense shouldve backed him up.
Jake Fox and Geovany Soto pulled together all 5 of the Cub’s RBI’s today with the win over the White Sox. Fox had a 2 run homerun and Soto had a 3 run homer.
Randy Wells pitched a great game today earning the win. Carlos Marmol had a rough outing getting pulled after bases were loaded in the BOT 8th score 5-4. Sean Marshall came in and pitched a curve ball to A.J.Pierzynski who grounded out to Derrek Lee who threw home to Soto, then back to first to get the double play. Kevin Gregg came in to close for our Cubs, and shockingly didnt blow the lead, OR the game!
In other news: I found an article from CSN Chicago about Milton Bradley. Here it is:
Milton Bradley left U.S. Cellular Field in street clothes after having a confrontation with Lou Piniella after his final at-bat in the sixth inning.
After the game, Piniella said it was time because he had ‘seen enough’ and that the two had an argument and he told him to take his jersey off. He also said that he would put Bradley’s name in the lineup Saturday.
Bradley and Piniella exchanged words in the tunnel leading to the clubhouse after his at-bat. Bradley threw his helmet down after flying out and Piniella followed him to the tunnel, where the two had an argument.
Bradley was replaced by Ryan Freel in right.
That cant be good.
Happy Father’s Day to all the MLB players who are fathers and daddy’s!
Cubs are up 2-0 in the 4th inning by Geovany Soto’s solo homerun and Jake Fox’s sac fly to DeRosa to score Theriot. Soto walks in the 5th and another run scores to make it 4-0.
Randy Wells is pitching a very good game today. In 5 innings so far, he has only allowed 2 hits. He also got a single in the 5th. Wells scores on Derrek Lee’s bases loaded single! Wells gets pulled at the TOP 7th with 2 outs and man on 1st and 3rd. He did a very good job today limiting the Indians to 1 run.
Derrek Lee has been on FIRE this series. Before this game, he was batting 5 for 10 with 3 homeruns and 4 runs scored! He just had a bases loaded single!
Jake FOX GETS a 2 run DOUBLE!! JUST missed a grand slam by 10 feet!! 6-0 CUBS in the 5th!!! Fox ended up with 3 RBI’s!
CUBS WIN! Nice play by Andres Blanco!!
We’re singin’ GO Cubs GO, GO CUBS GO, Hey Chicago Whatta ya say? Cubs are gonna win today. Go Cubs go, GO CUBS GOO! Hey Chicago Whatta ya say? The CUBS GET THE SWEEP TODAY!!!
