Okay, maybe the vicodin has had some kind of effect on me over the past two days, but do you have any idea how hard it is to come up with a fresh "sweep" illustration? Granted, sweeps don't come along that often, but still.
I do like the Roadrunner alot though, so well... there you go.
The suddenly hot Chicago Cubs post their first sweep of the season, and it couldn't come at a nicer place than Miller Park in Milwaukee against the suddenly un-hot Brewers.
How's this for bats?
Ryan Theriot goes 5 for 6. Kosuke Fukudome goes 3 for 4 with a homer, double and 2 walks. Tyler Colvin does the same only with one less walk. 8 RBI's between those three! Geovany Soto goes 2 for 4, drives in 1 scores 2 and raises his average to .366!
And Randy Wells is now 2-0 with a 2.49 ERA after tossing 7 innings of 7 hit ball.
Cubs tuhwelve, Brewers two.
Lou Piniella is tinkering daily and right now he's a freaking genius at it as he sat the ultra-hot Marlon Byrd and played Colvin, who did the kind of massive un-rookie-like damage that makes you and me have hope for the present and feel oh so happy.
It was pretty bleak around here just a couple days ago, and now?
Tomorrow the Cubs come home to Wrigley Field to face the Jim Riggleman-led Washington Nats, who have turned out to be sort of respectable so far this year at 10-9.
