CUBS (13-9) @ CARDS (12-11)

Another incredible performance by Kerry Wood is spoiled by the Cubs lack of offence and some really bad plays by Alex Gonzalez - kind of like last years playoffs.
Wood didn’t walk anyone in eight innings and struck out 10. His […]

Tonight, a 38 year old showed a 23 and a 22 year old how to hold a team (that will be lucky break even this year) under 10 runs.
Although Maddux got roughed up for 6 hits and gave up 2 […]

WP: Randy Johnson (2-2)
LP: Carlos Zambrano (2-1)
Randy Johnson is now 12-0 against the Cubs in 13 trys.
Richie Sexon hit the longest home run in the BOB off the score board in center for the 200th of his carrer.
The only hit the Cubs had off Johnson in […]

Game Log - Lucky 13

METS (7-12) @ CUBS (12-6)
WP: Matt Clement (3-1)
LP: Al Leiter (1-1)
So while I’ve been busy proclaiming Kerry Wood the Jedi Master, it has been revealed that there is…another.
Matt Clement threw a carrer high 13 strike outs and goes hitless for 6 1/3 in 8 innings. His slider was just rediculous […]

METS (7-11) @ CUBS (11-6)
WP: Kerry Wood (3-1)
LP: Tyler Yates (1-2)
There was that inning again. That one where, after a slow start followed by a few strong innings, Kerry falls apart. Either he loses his rhythm or the other side begins to pick up on his stuff after a pass […]

Game Log - That’s The Maddux We Know And Love

METS (7-10) @ CUBS (10-6)
WP: Greg Maddux (1-2)
LP: Jae Seo (0-3)
With the wind blowing in and the mediocre Mets in town, the stage was set for Greg Maddux’s first win as the returned prodigal son. The offense didn’t show up to the way it did in Pittsburgh, but it didn’t […]

The first 8 batters cross the plate. Each starter except Gonzo and Mitre has an RBI. Corey goes 5-6 and raises his average 56 points.
Mitre pitches a shut-out through 7 and gets his first major league victory. Baker pulls […]

CUBS (8-6) @ PIRATES (7-6)
WP: Carlos Zambrano (2-0)
LP: Ryan Vogelsong (1-2)
There’s not much to complain about in the Cubs victory today, but if you HAD to press me I would say that it would be Dusty leaving Big Z in for 111 pitches in a blowout. Now, I know the […]

REDS (7-5) @ CUBS (7-6)
WP: Matt Clement (2-1)
LP: Jimmy Haynes (0-2)
For the second game in a row, Matt Clement pitched, if not a gem, at least a high quality mineral. After a typical first inning struggle, he found his groove. At one point, Clement sat down 11 batters in […]
