It would seem that the Cubs are to the Brewers as the Pirates are to the Cubs.
Matt Garza didn’t have it early, but recovered well, and the bullpen locked things down (at least until things were well within hand). The bats were out in full force, and, with three homers, the Cubs finally took advantage of the wind blowing out. The defense was solid, too. Smiles all around.
But my favorite part? When Kosuke Fukudome returned to the dugout after flying out to left in the bottom of eighth, ending his hopes of hitting for the cycle, you know who was there waiting at the top step to pat him on the back? Carlos Zambrano.
