Sunday Game Thread / Diamondbacks (11-13) @ Cubs (12-13)
Cubs try to take three of four from Arizona and end the homestand 4-3. Feels a lot like last weekend, when the Cubs were trying to salvage a road trip that started awfully, with three losses in four games at CitiField, then ended on an up note with the sweep at Milwaukee.
D-backs: 1. Abreu (2B) 2. Drew (SS) 3. Upton (RF) 4. Reynolds (3B) 5. Young (CF) 6. Ryal (1B) 7. Gillespie (LF) 8. Hester (C) 9. Jackson (P)
Cubs: 1. Theriot (SS) 2. Fukudome (RF) 3. Lee (1B) 4. Byrd (CF) 5. Tracy (3B) 6. Soriano (LF) 7. Fontenot (2B) 8. Soto (C) 9. Gorzelanny (P)
One more victory to ensure a winning season!

Two nights in LA for the kids? Woooo

So are lack of chances due to the great pitching?
TLS watch: 0-4 with Iowa last night. Saving his pinch hits for September.
Can't have everything, I guess.
Blaspheme maybe, but I think Scherzer is the best pitcher in the NL right now.
Maddon was pimping Russell for Gold Glove honors recently as a manager should do...
