The Cubs can still get a split in this series.

Raley would love a split. Will his pitching be up to snuff though. And then there's the "offense"-----a lot to depend on for that to happen.

Man.....the home plate ump screwed DeJesus. 3 pitches called strikes were balls. Can't manufacture risp situations that way. Thanks ump. Rat bastardo!

Raley has slipped into his familiar pattern. Good strong beginning but figured-out by opposition hitters. He lasted as "good" a little longer this second time out, but Cincy hitters found their stride and slapped him around to score and take the lead. Too bad as Raley was looking unhittable. Oh well, it's audition time.

One more thing. Raley did his job. On the other hand, the Cubs offense is yet to show up (ump's role notwithstanding). Four innings left for salvaging a split.

9th inning. It's either CurtainTime for the Cubs offense, or it's just "Curtains."
