Once again the boys in blue staged a comeback win against a team from the west. All the cylinders seem to be clicking for this team right now, especially at home. Marquis didn't pitch terribly, aside from one inning. Seems like once again, the Cubs are getting contributions across the board. Even when the Cubs were losing, I never felt like they were out of it. Marmol and Wood were absolutely filthy in the 8th and 9th innings. Granted, the Rockies are without a good portion of their lineup, including Matt Holiday and Troy Tulowitzki, but it was still a pretty solid win. At this point, back to back sweeps don't seem out of the question, but we'll have to see how the remainder of the series plays out. The Iceman pitches tonight and hopefully he'll bring his A game.
Welcome to the Wild
Effectively Wild is your place for mediocre coverage of the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, Arsenal FC, and FC Kaiserslautern.
