Box Score

Both Jacque Jones and Ronny Cedeno came through in the clutch with base hits to drive in runs and the Cubs added a much needed insurance run in the 9th to get this win. With the Brewers playing the Reds, it is essential that we take this series and then sweep the Reds. If we can do that, we should be able to take at least one game off that Brewer lead.

  • Jacque Jones is now hitting .304 in the last 28 days and .429 with a .520 OBP in the last seven. Please stop busting on him.
  • How much crap would Ronny Cedeno have gotten if his error would have allowed a run to score in the 7th?
  • Mark DeRosa left the game with left hamstring tendinitis. Is it just me or does it seem like we’re making roster moves at just the right times (i.e. – Ward gets hurt, DeRosa gets hurt, etc.)
