Jackson makes it rain, Cubs beat Brewers 6-1

We got a taste of the future tonight as three key players locked in for the next several years did their part to make the rain go away. Starter Edwin Jackson appeared determined as ever to let nothing get in the way of tonight’s Cub’s victory. Anthony Rizzo gave the Cubs a two run lead in the third after he took one out to center (14), plating David DeJesus. Starlin Castro would follow suit homering in the ...

Misery continues as Cubs blow nightcap to Brew Crew 3-2

Hoping to rewrite the misfortunes of game one, the Cubs positioned themselves to do just that. But in an all too familiar setting, Chicago’s pen blew their second on the day. Jake Arrieta was called up for the special occasion and rose to it. It wasn’t until the fourth that Milwaukee was able to muster up a hit. In the fifth, Juan Francisco sent one to the seats in left center, his 14th on the year. Arrieta ...

Brew Crew falters, Cubs take advantage and rare series win 7-2

Milwaukee made mistakes, Chicago made them pay. Dioner Navarro and company made sure not to waste away any errors committed by the Brewers nor the brilliant performance from Matt Garza. The pitcher and catcher combo took care of business from the get-go with fastball control. Garza brought the heat early and his command prevented Milwaukee from collecting a hit until the fourth. They were shut out until the ...

Greinke to the South Side?

Prior to the start of the Brewers last road trip GM Doug Melvin was quoted as saying, "If we lose five out of six, we're selling", well… they lost 6 of 6, so… I guess they’re selling. The Sox desperately need to upgrade a pitching staff that has seen its fair share of injuries and Phil Humber. The other side of the coin is that the Tigers have already upgraded their rotation with the acquisition of Anibal S ...

Colvin And Fukudome Break Out The Brooms

Randy Wells has been fantastic for the Cubs in his short career. The only thing that has held him back has been run support from his offense. On Sunday, Wells didn't have to worry about run support. For each of the 1st 5 innings, Chicago put runs on the board. Chicago lit up Milwaukee's starting pitcher Dave Bush for 9 (7 earned) runs. Rookie Tyler Colvin (who started in center for Marlon Byrd) ignited the ...

Lilly And Zambrano Dazzle In Debuts As Cubs Win 5-1

Ted Lilly was activated off of the disabled list on Saturday. Lilly gave the already stacked Cubs' starting rotation a boost.  In order to activate Lilly, Chicago decided to option Jeff Samardzija to AAA Iowa. It appears that Samardzija's act has finally grown tired with Lou Piniella. Samardzija surrendered 11 runs (7 earned) in 3.1 innings pitched in a limited role. Samardzija has been mishandled by the fr ...

Cubs Strike Early And Often In Rout of Brewers

Ryan Dempster loves pitching against the Brewers. He showed why once again on Friday night in game 1 of a 3 game set in Milwaukee. Coming off of a disappointing series in New York, Chicago's offense got started in the 1st inning and continued to add insurance. Dempster was spectacular, handling a potent Brewers offense. The former Cubs closer went 7.2 innings allowing only 1 run. Dempster struck out 4 while ...

The Game That Got Away

With the wind howling out, the Cubs sent their ace to the mound in hopes of sweeping the Brewers out of town. The brooms weren't needed unfortunately due to yet another bullpen collapse. Carlos Zambrano (1-1) had a relatively short outing due to the combination of a high pitch count and what appeared to be forearm cramping. Big Z continued to be inconsistent allowing 4 (3 earned) runs while walking 3 and st ...
