The Brewers crushed the Cubs 11-2 on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field.  Former Cubs player Casey McGehee had a career day going 4 for 5 with 5 RBI’s and 3 runs scored.  McGehee was a double shy of hitting for the cycle.  Rich Harden took the loss – going 2+ innings, giving up 7ER on 8 hits and 1 walk.  Batting 6th in the lineup for the 1st time all season, Alfonso Soriano went 0 for 4 with 2 K’s.  David Patton and Jeff Samardzija each gave up 2 ER in relief outings.  Ouch.

With the Reds beating the Cards, the Cubs stayed 2.5 games behind each of the Brewers and Cards for 1st place in the NL Central.

    Have you guys heard about the chiropractor from Chicago who is going on a hunger strike until the Cubs win five in a row? With pitching performances like this, someone better the ER ready for this guy.

    On the bright side of things, maybe we are turning it around. While yesterday’s set back was a rough one they still lead the season series over the Brewers 5-4. They could pay off closer to the end of the season.
