Sad But True: Cubs Shut Out 3-0 by Joel Pineiro

Posted on 20 May 2009 by Lou


There’s not much to say here.  Joel Pineiro shut out the Cubs 3-0 with a complete game 3-hit shutout.  Pineiro needed only 92 pitches to finish the deal.  He didn’t issue any walks with 5 K’s.  What a joke…

Milton Bradley went 0 for 3 and is now hitting .188 on the season.  It is already May 20th and Bradley – GM Jim Hendry’s big signing in the off-season which cost the Cubs Mark DeRosa and Jason Marquis – still isn’t hitting over .200.

The lone bright spot – Ted Lilly gave up only 3 earned runs on 4 hits and 3 walks against one of the better offenses in the league.  Lilly is now 5-3 on the 2009 MLB schedule.

Wednesday night’s middle game between the 2 teams is a great one – Ryan Dempster v. Chris Carpenter.
