Sac fly for Soriano, that's as useful as he gets these days.
   5. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: April 23, 2012 at 08:29 PM (#4114124)
Soriano has to have surpassed his longest string of at-bats without an extra base hit to start a season, right?
   6. Brian C Posted: April 23, 2012 at 08:30 PM (#4114126)
And there's Castro's first CS of the year, on a pickoff. Bummer.
   7. Guts Posted: April 23, 2012 at 09:25 PM (#4114168)
Cards have won 16 straight series.

Furcal kicks one, but then starts the DP with the next pitch. No damage.
   10. Guts Posted: April 23, 2012 at 09:38 PM (#4114193)
Garza gets a hit! I believe that is the first hit by a Cubs pitcher this year.
   11. Brian C Posted: April 23, 2012 at 09:52 PM (#4114216)
Garza gets a hit! I believe that is the first hit by a Cubs pitcher this year.

Indeed it was. In addition, his earlier sacrifice was only the third by a Cubs pitcher.

Someone here the other day said that the Cubs were really scraping the bottom of the sports celebrity barrel by having Earl Bennett do the stretch. Apparently the Cubs marketing department took that as a dare, because tonight they have the UIC men's basketball coach.
   13. Guts Posted: April 23, 2012 at 10:27 PM (#4114296)
This game is actually pretty intense. Cards aren't generating much offense, Cubs getting enough hits to keep it interesting.
   14. Guts Posted: April 23, 2012 at 10:31 PM (#4114301)
Great start by Garcia. Would be nice this season to see him take the next step by replicating his home performance on the road.
   15. Guts Posted: April 23, 2012 at 10:45 PM (#4114315)
Why the hit and run is stupid - Ex. 15736.
   16. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: April 23, 2012 at 10:57 PM (#4114345)
Hell of an AB from LaHair.
   17. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: April 23, 2012 at 11:04 PM (#4114363)
Nice!
   18. McCoy Posted: April 23, 2012 at 11:04 PM (#4114364)
Cubs win!
   19. Guts Posted: April 23, 2012 at 11:04 PM (#4114366)
Wow. Talk about some horrible Isringhausen flashbacks.
   20. McCoy Posted: April 23, 2012 at 11:09 PM (#4114381)
I can't remember, is that the first time this seaon?
