Cubs win their 30th game, Sox lose their 28th game.

July 2 at Cubs


How was the trophy defended today?
Nice effort but too much to overcome.

Short Take:  The Cubs pound Mark Buehrle in the first and fifth inning giving the Cubs enough to avoid getting swept by the defending World Series Champions.

The Sox again were looking to sweep the Cubs this season but wern't able to do so. The Cubs showed up in a big way this afternoon out slugging our Sox to a 15-11 win.

It looked like the Sox were going to cruise their way to a sweep today. In the first the Sox put up two runs against Cubs' mental case Carlos Zambrano. With two outs Cubs fans seemed more concered with throwing back foul balls (no joke) and Zambrano looked more concerned with Scott Podsednik on first base. Jermaine Dye doubled scoring Podsednik from first and A.J. Pierzynski had a bloop hit over third base to score Dye making it 2-0 Good Guys.

But, in what has been a problem with our starting pitchers this week, Mark Buehrle came out and in a flash the Cubs had a 7-2 lead after one. Juan Pierre singled to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a bunt single by Ronnie Cedano. Derek Lee doubled scoring both runners to tie the game and advanced to third on the relay overthrow. Aarmis Ramierez hit a sac fly giving the Cubs a 3-2 lead, next batter Michael Barrett hit a solo shot which was followed by a two doubles by Matt Murton and Neifi Perez. The inning was capped off with a two run home run by Carlos Zambrano.

Buehrle settled down for the second and third innings and the Sox went to work against a wild Zambrano in the fourth. After A.J. walked and Alex Cintron was hit by a pitch, hot hitter Juan Uribe hit a three run bomb to cut the Cubs lead to 7-5.

The Cubs came right back in their half of the fifth. Aarmis Ramierez led off and reached first on a error by Alex Cintron and after back to back singles by Barrett and Pagan, Matt Murton grounded into a fielder's choice to give the Cubs a 8-5 lead. The big blow in the inning was Neifi Perez's three run home run giving the Cubs a 11-5 lead.

This game was still far from over. Jim Thome led off the seventh inning with a pinch hit solo home run. Scott Podsednik hit a infield double off a diving shortstop Cedeno. Tadahito Iguchi singled putting runners on the corners for Konerko. Paulie singled scoring Pods cutting the Cubs lead to 11-7. With Iguchi and Konerko on base, A.J., Dye, and Cintron couldn't bring anymore runners home.

After failing to score in the seventh, it looked like Ozzie was throwing in the towel by bringing in Cliff Politte to pitch the inning. He promtly gave up a solo home run to Angel Pagan, his first career home run making it a 12-7 Cubs lead, later in the inning Jacque Jones came up with a RBI double making it a 13-7 Cubs lead.

Our Sox still refused to die. Joe Crede hit a two run home run and Tadahito Iguchi launched a solo home run in the eighth inning putting the Sox within three making it a 13-10 Cubs lead. But, Cliff was left in to pitch the eighth inning and gave up Angel Pagan's second career home run, this time a two run shot making it 15-10 Cubs. Wow.

There were no amazing comeback's today. The Sox scored their 11th run on a bases loaded sac fly off the bat of Juan Uribe. The Cubs bullpen tried to blow it but Joe Crede grounded into the third out with runners on the corners. While Cubs fans will leave this game with the false hope that this will be the start of their turnaround, Sox fans will leave this game thinking about the divison race they are currently in trailing the A.L. Central Division leading Tigers by 2 1/2 games now a week before the All-Star Break. Tomorrow, the Sox return home to open a four game series against the Baltimore Orioles. Monday's game has a 6:05pm start and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet plus, which is usually CLTV for most viewers.
