I just read Bruce Miles’s blog over at the Daily Herald and he said that Jake Fox will be called up before this afternoons game against the Pirates. Aaron Miles could be headed to the disabled list or Neal Cotts could be optioned down to Triple A Iowa. Which move would you prefer?
The Chicago Cubs finally scored some runs but the Pittsburgh Pirates still beat them by the score of 10-8 on Memorial Day at Wrigley Field. Ryan Dempster only lasted four innings and gave up six runs as he had a terrible game. The bullpen wasn’t any better thanks to Neal Cotts and Aaron Heilman. Losing streak is now eight games.
After two days off, the Cubs came back on Tuesday night and kicked off a three game series with the Cincinnati Reds and they got off on the right track with a 7-2 victory. It was a great way to start the series even though Lou had to use a few guys out of the bullpen that he would rather not have.
The Chicago Cubs won’t be going 182-0 in 2009 as they lost Tuesday night 3-2 in 10 innings to the Houston Astros. The Cubs offense sputtered and could not help out Ryan Dempster who threw six strong innings. Neal Cotts took the loss for the Cubbies.
