Man, how about that performance?
5 for 5 with a couple dingers for Micah Hoffpauir, the Cubs' minor league first baseman.
I don't actually know how many hits he got off Pedro, but Pedro went 6 innings so I'm imagining the majority came off him.
Lou said something like, "He's not hurting himself at all."
It'll be interesting to see who makes the playoff roster or not, but damn that's a compelling piece of hitting from young Hoffpauir.
The Cubs lose 6-7, Harden has control issues, the bullpen has a let-down, but hey... 5 of the Cub regulars were on the bench.
Speaking of which: DeRo and Soto HEAL NOW please.
Cubs back to Milwaukee tonight with NLDS Game Uno starter Ryan Dempster on the mound for the Cubs, and Jeff Suppan on for Milwaukee.
I read Ryan Braun had a dramatic 2 out grand slam in the 10th for a Brewer win last night.
He had been pretty cold for awhile.
Lets get him back in the fridge.
