Playing catch-up once more...

It's hard to post when the Cubs lose, but I need to keep up with this. At least, I'm not a whole week behind this time.

On Wednesday, May 5th (Cinco de Mayo), the Cubs lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2. Ted Lilly didn't seem to have it and the guy pitching for the Pirates (Charlie Morton) came into the game 0-5 with a 12.57 ERA before the game.

Of course, the tandem of Derrek Lee and Aramis Ramirez continue their year-long slump into the second month of the season. Ryan Church hit his second homer in two days. No walks on either side. The Cubs only left 5 men on base, definitely low for them.
