Before we get to the Astros, how's about puttin' our hands together for taking 3 of 4 from the Philadelpha Phillies!
6 hits from the kids up top (Colvin with 3 leading off and Castro 3 hitting #2) along with their 3 runs.
D. Lee, Alfonso Soriano, and Geo Soto with 3 RBIs apiece! If not for the hiccup in the 9th yesterday, the Cubs would have swept last year's NL champs 4 to nothin'!
So the Cubs are, on a scale of cold to hot, probably about oatmeal. But that's a WHOLE lot hotter than we could have imagined during the last half.
With an ASTOUNDING eleven runs including 6 off Roy Halladay, the Phils could manage only 6 off Tom Gorzelanny and co.
Over the series, it was The Cubs 28, Phils 19.
And now, I am so happy to announce that the Houston Astros will be playing at Wrigley Field this evening.
In this season of I-just-can't-seem-to-get-happy, NOTHING would make me happier than seeing the Cubs get up to Higher Heat during the next couple nights.
Please read the words above out loud and pause at the end of each line (it rhymes, I swear), and should you leave a comment, begin with our traditional I HATE THE ASTROS...
