Chicago Cubs 6
Chicago White Sox 3
To say that the Cubs needed that win is an understatement and perhaps a little too cliche, but what is sports without the cliches? Carlos Zambrano led the charge with a controlled victory with 5 strikeouts.
The future of the franchise and the money guy, Starlin Castro and Carlos Pena hit the leather from the park.
The win probably staved off Mike Quade’s call into the owner’s suite for a tete a tete. Actually, this win has the Cubs turning a corner and even though that infamous third win in a row has elluded them this season, they’re starting to play more consistent. The big bats are swinging and I’m predicting that the Cubs will win three in a row this series.
Another key to this win is the Cubs got most of their runs later in the game which has been a criticism of the team this year that they score early and fall apart late.
Emotions did flare up in this series as Ozzie Guillen got ejected from the game on a punt off Soto’s mask. Stay tuned folks, things are getting interesting.
