Have to play catch-up...

I haven't posted any results since the 4-3 10-inning game the Cubbies won on Monday, April 26th. Have almost a week of games to catch up on.

On Tuesday, the 27th, the Cubs lost to Washington 3-1

Hernandez pitches Nationals past Cubs 3-1

Livan Hernandez did in the Cubs and Tom Gorzelanny continued to be winless. Cubs left eight men on base. They could have won, had they scored runs.

On Wednesday, April 28th, the Cubs lost to the Washington Nationals again, this time 3-2. Ryan Dempster was the recepient of no run support this game. The only bright spot for the Cubs is that Ryan Theriot is hitting like a REAL lead off hitter. Leaving 11 baserunners on base.

On Thursday, the Cubs continued their losing ways, letting the Arizona Diamondbacks beat them 13-5. At least this was a blow-out. Ted Lilly looked nothing like the domineering left-hander he was in his first start back after coming off the disabled list. The highlight of the day had to be Kosuke Fukudome's grand slam that at least prevented the Cubs from being laughed out of Wrigley Field.
Kennedy, LaRoche lead Diamondbacks past Cubs

On Friday, the Cub bats woke up and won against the Arizona Diamondbacks, 11-5. Home run derby for the Cubs, including Kosuke Fukudome, Alfonso Soriano, Geovany Soto, and Marlon Byrd. Randy Wells went six strong innings, giving up five runs to the Diamondbacks and there was wonderful relief pitching from John Grabow, Carlos Zambrano and Carlos Marmol. Marlon Byrd didn't even start the game and he had two hits. It seems whatever move Lou Piniella makes, it is a genius move. Theriot's hit streak is at 10 games now.

Soriano homers, Cubs beat Diamondbacks 11-5

On Saturday, there was another Cubs victory -- 7-5 over the Diamondbacks. And Alfonso Soriano continued his home run binge, with a homer off of former Cub Bobby Howry. Sean Marshall got the win in relief, coming in after Carlos Silva. And Carlos Marmol made it a very interesting ninth inning, keeping Cub fans on the edges of their seats. Derrek Lee drove home the winning runs. And Ryan Theriot's hitting streak is extended to 11 games.

Soriano homers, Cubs rally past Diamondbacks 7-5

Finally, on Sunday, the Cubs mastery of Arizona continued as they beat the Diamondbacks, 10-5. Alfonzo Soriano hit 2 home runs to lead the Cubs and Marlon Byrd added a home run for fun. Hard luck pitcher Tom Gorzelanny finally got his first win of the season. He pitched seven strong innings, striking out a career-high 10 batters.

Soriano, Gorzelanny lead Cubs past D-Backs



Monday is an off day, travel day actually, as the Cubs go to first Pittsburgh and then to Cincinnati. Here's hoping the bats stay hot and the pitching continues to dazzle. Dempster and Lilly will get things started in Pittsburgh.
