Cubs Finish Off Perfect Road Trip
The Cubs finish off the road trip a perfect 0-6, scoring a grand total of five runs in those six games and are now 21-21 on the season. $140 million doesn't buy what it use to in this crazy world.
Why the Cubs Lost: Because God hates the Cubs and all their fans.
Ted Lilly pitched...not particularly good or bad, but he pitched, giving up five runs in his 6.1 IP. Aaron Heilman came in to try and bail him out in the seventh with a man on third and one out and struck out Scott Hairston. This would be when I remarked in Parachat that he'll still end up letting the run in and after intentionally walking Adrian Gonzales, Heilman hung a slider to Kevin Kouzmanoff and three runs later, the game was completely out of reach.
The offense sputtered along once again with no baserunners until a Mike Fontenot single in the fifth with two outs. They manage to mount a few rallies in the upcoming innings that predicatbly fizzled out including a sharp two-out grounder by Ryan Theriot up the middle that Chris Young kicked to the second baseman that would have scored a run. Reed Johnson did knock a meatball into the front row in left field for the Cubs only two runs and the Cubs come home with their tails between their legs and hoping the Friendly Confines live up to their name.
