The Cubs got some hits while guys were on base and... hey, isn't that the way baseball's supposed to be played?
Like in the 3rd Geo Soto and Starlin Castro singled, and then Tyler Colvin stepped up and knocked one out.
His 10th of the season, 10th of his young career.
The Cubs had a lead and then just kept going as the game went along until they had 8 runs. Which was good because the Sox ended up getting 3 in the bottom of the 9th and gave me a freaking heart attack.
But it ends up 8-6, Cubs with the W, Sox with their first L in about a year.
Cubs get 14 hits with 3 from Soto and 3 from Colvin (along with his 4 RBIs).
Alfonso hit one out, and Aramis hit a double to go with yesterdays homer which maybe starts a hitting streak for our one-sixty-something-hitting All-Star 3rd baseman.
Fingers crossed there.
Dempster goes 7 and gets a nice little win.
I was so happy I rode my bike over to the Mucho Gusto and got some Victory Burritos to go.
That is a nice Sunday, my friend.
And now it's struggling Randy Wells against Paul Maholm and those Pesky Pirates.
Maholm is 4-6, I think 2 of his wins coming against the Cubs so, you know... ahoy this, matey.
And KEEP GOING, CUBS!
And thank you for the opportunity for me to do a post without profanity or an overwhelming sense of dread!
