Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 11, Pirates 6 – August 2, 2011

Chicago Cubs

I’m not sure I’ve ever been so frustrated to see the Cubs lambast a team. Or to win three in a row over teams not named the Astros, for that matter. Where were these guys months ago? Hell, where were these guys last week?

As for the game, you know the story: Randy Wells did what he *always* does, and gave up two runs in the first. But it didn’t much matter because, by the 4th inning, the Cubs had already put 10 runs on the board. And, without Matt Holliday on the team to take a dangerous slide into second base, setting off a chain reaction of awfulness, the Pirates weren’t coming back.

The Cubs had six homers, including two by Alfonso Soriano, who now has four in his last four games – come on, AL, *someone* needs a DH, right? The Cubs had a whopping 21 hits, too, including three by Tyler Colvin, who I would say was a triple short of the cycle if that expression wasn’t stupid. Everybody got in on the action.

Well, almost everybody.
