Wow, the Cubs bullpen threw four scoreless innings and only allowed one hit as the Cubs beat the Braves 3-2 in 11 innings on Wednesday night. Did Carlos Marmol and Kevin Gregg read our blog and other Cubs blogs after blowing the lead on Tuesday? It sure looked liked it as they both had 1-2-3 innings! Series is now tied at one game each!
It’s official Cubs fans, the bullpen officially sucks! Once again the pen denied Randy Wells from picking up his first win as they blew as Carlos Marmol and Kevin Gregg both allowed runs in the final two innings. The big blow was a game tying two run home run off the bat of Jeff Francoeur when he took Gregg deep with two outs in the ninth.
Cubs starting pitcher Sean Marshall didn’t have anything working on Sunday night as the Dodgers scored five runs in the first inning and didn’t look back as they beat the Cubs 8-2 and salvaged a split in the four game series at Wrigley Field. I’m happy with a split with the Dodgers but things still need to be worked on!
The Cubs bounced back on Friday afternoon and got a little bit of revenge on the Dodgers as this time it was the Cubs winning by the score of 2-1. Ted Lilly recorded his sixth win of the year while Koyie Hill and Kosuke Fukudome did the damage at the plate for the Cubs. Great win for the Cubs!
