Well, it’s going to be hard to top the last two nights, but a series sweep – however it happens – might just do it. I’ll be at today’s game again in the right field bleachers (lower right corner), so I hope it’s another great one.

Chris Volstad is still looking for his first very good start. After two solid performances by Matt Garza and Jeff Samardzija this week, perhaps Volstad will be inspired.
