Cubs Lose Another Close One to Pirates — 4-2

Posted on 06 May 2010 by Lou

The Cubs lost another close game to the Pirates in Pittsburgh – 4-2 – on Wednesday night.  They look to avoid the sweep tonight as Randy Wells takes the hill.

Ted Lilly had another poor start – 6 innings pitched – 4 ER on 9 hits.  He now has a 1.35 WHIP and a 5.29 ERA.  Not good.

This time, however, the Cubs bats were limited by Charlie Morton who held the Cubs to just 5 hits and no walks in his 6 innings.  The Cubs scored their 2 runs in the 4th inning on a sacrifice fly by Aramis Ramirez and an RBI single by Mike Fontenot.  3 relievers then held the Cubs hitless from the 7th through the 9th innings.

Manager Lou Pinella has gotta be getting frustrated again – look for another Lou outburst if the Cubs get swept tonight…
