Kevin “Cy” Correia continued his dominance of late (seriously, setting aside one bad outing, he’s been pretty awesome for a month now), and Doug Davis couldn’t keep the Pirates under a couple runs despite their Cub-like hitting with runners on base today. I suppose that’s the problem when you allow a bajillion base runners. The errors didn’t help.
The Cubs, of course, made sure to tease us with a bases loaded opportunity in the 8th and then an ultimately meaningless 2-run bomb by Alfonso Soriano in the 9th (his first since May 2).
