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.
