Cubs 12, Padres 3 SP: Zambrano
Piniella: We’ve been swinging the bats very well at home. When you do that, it makes it much easier on your pitching.
Add Randy Wolf and Sean Henn to the list of pitchers the Cubs have beaten up on this year. Wolf gave up 7 ER on 8 hits with 5 walks in 4.0 innings. Henn, brought in in relief, was hardly any better serving up 5 ER on 3 hits with 3 walks in 1.2 innings. Yikes. The Cubs continue to be the masters of the big inning in 2008 adding two more 5+ run innings tonight putting their total at a major league leading 13. (The team with the second most is the Rays with 8.)
And here is the query of the day: in hopes that a certain ex-Cardinal is not coming to play CF at Wrigley after being cut by the team with the worst record in baseball because they thought he couldn’t play and/or is an asshole.
