Just saw a commercial for Chevy. What do Dusty and Chevy have in common? Neither can manage a pitching staff.

Maddux - Reached on E-5. Finally a baserunner
C Pat - a 1st pitch swing and an out to 3
inane game note: 3 Cub batters have now gone out on 1st pitch swings. Can we work the count a little bit?
Bottom of the 3rd
Ty Wiggington - out 4-3 (Do you think this guy's nickname is Wiggy?)
David Ross - F-9 to Burnitz
Mark Redman - SINGLE past Maddux's glove
Lawton - Hollandsworth either loses the ball or flat out does not hussle after it as the ball drops in for a two base hit. Maddux looks pissed.
Wilson hits a slow roller to Hairston who bare hands and throws to Lee, a sweep tag misses. redman scores. No argument from Dusty, I think he's getting his kid for the postgame interview. Bay singles to LF. Lawton scores. Cub 0 -Pirates 2
