A tough-luck loss last night where the big difference was a well-executed double steal by the Giants in the first and the Cubs inability to get Daryle Ward home after a lead-off double in the seventh. And of course, the umpires rather generous strike zone, although he was at least consistent with both teams.

Tonight, Dempster tries to go back to being awesome after being pistol-whipped by the White Sox over the weekend. If he can manage a win tonight, it'll be his first on the road all season, where he is 0-3 with a 4.19 ERA so far this season.

Lou's ever-changing lineup puts Soto back in the clean-up spot and Edmonds back to the five spot, with Murton patrolling left field once again. A win sure would be nice tonight with a Sean Gallagher vs Tim Lincecum match-up looming tomorrow.

 

I talked with Cubs Organizational Hitting Instructor Dave Keller today, and he admitted that he was the guy in the tower yelling at Felix Pie (in Spanish) after Pie left the AZL Cubs game on Sunday, but that the conversation had to do with Pie verbally being given the hitting schedule for Monday at Fitch Park (which otherwise was an off day for the AZL Cubs), and that there was no animosity involved in the exchange.
