POTG: 1B Derek Lee (HR, H, 2R, RBI)

I don’t have anything to say, and the next game is on. AAAH.
HOME RUNS = WINS. This is such an easy formula, but it’s the only reason they won this game. Lee and Ram getting hot would make all the difference down the stretch.
Marquis continues to pitch solidly down the stretch. Nothing outstanding here, but it’s another quality start that kept the team in it.
I’m thinking Ohman’s public apology yesterday was said privately a few times before now, or he’d be a Detroit Tiger at this point.
Today’s game is yet another swing game. I think the Cubs stand a good chance against Woody Williams, it’s all on how Rich looks against the Astros.
