How else to describe scoring nine runs in the first five innings on six singles and a double? (Obviously seven Giant walks to that point contributed.)
Or the Cubs scoring 12 runs without Ramirez or Lee in the lineup and with Soriano only contributing a walk.
Or Carlos Zambrano batting for himself in the last of the 5th, then not taking the mound in the 6th, departing with a 2-hit shutout after throwing only 80 pitches. (The long Cub fifth inning would seem to be the reason.)
Or Koyie Hill collecting 5 RBI, all with two outs. (He must REALLY be ticked off about that Jason Kendall trade.)
Or Jacque Jones delivering a two-out hit producing two runs; that’s two RBI for Jacque Jones, not just in the same week, BUT IN THE SAME AT-BAT!
Or Cub hitters standing still for 10 unintentional walks.
Or a wholly bizarre Cubs/Giants game taking place and Barry Bonds not having anything whatsoever to do with it.
