Man, that was a tough one.
Sean Marshall goes 5 innings, strikes out 8 and gives up a couple runs.
The Cub bats left 13 men on base.
I like this kid, he's been up and down and in the pen and last night, finally, back as a starter.
You know, I don't know about this year, but somewhere down the line he's gonna be in the starting rotation.
I didn't realize the Marlin's starter Anibal Sanchez had such potential and injury in his past.
So Lou rested most of the usual studs - D. Lee, Aramis, Soto all got the night off.
Well, for the most part - they all ended up in the game.
Sanchez is a lefty so Lou loaded the lineup with lefty bats, they just couldn't come up with the big hit.
Even switch hitting Carlos Zambrano was used as a pinch hitter.
But the Cubs lose 1-2.
I heard Pat Hughes say the Cubs had outscored their opponents by 160 runs so far this season.
Can that be true?
One hundred and sixty?
This is some kinda team - a total, all around, honest to God team.
Day game today, Ryan Dempster on the mound.
Whoa, it's on in 10 minutes.
