The game started out as in the playoffs last year, with Chris Young drilling a homer off of Ted Lilly. This game turned out much for the better, as Lilly turned in a commanding performance, striking out 10 and only surrendering the one run. He also helped his own cause by driving in one of the Cubs' runs. Nice job, TR. Lilly gave the Cubs exactly what they needed: a solid outing following the disaster that occurred in Cincinnati. A home run from Derrek Lee was a nice bonus. Now the heavy lifting begins as the Cubs face rookie Matt Scherzer and perpetual nemesis Randy Johnson over the weekend. I'll see you bastards on Monday!
Welcome to the Wild
Effectively Wild is your place for mediocre coverage of the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, Arsenal FC, and FC Kaiserslautern.
