Bigger night than you all thought
Houston loses badly to the lowly Mets, (although Leiter is still pitching
quite well at 11-5 this year), this has to be troublesome if they lose the
series against the NY'ers.
StL loses with Williams, their only bona fide front line starting pitcher
4-0 to the Marlins. I am glad the Cubs are done with the Marlins they are
playing spirited ball!
Prior pitched 6 shut out innings, we will see the after effects in the next
couple of days if there are any. He primarily used his fast ball last night
and only used his breaking stuff at critical moments.
Borowski got the save even though the young Cub corner IF'ers booted two
consecutively to load the bases and allow the winning run to enter the
Cubs moved into a virtual tie with StL in the loss column for 2nd place and
for the WC along with struggling AZ who had R. Johnson look less than
ordinary last night.
Lofton scored another run last night, Martinez filled in Grudz's role
getting two hits and turning a critical DP, and Ramirez hit his first HR, an
important one in the 9th.
