Les big homer
Nothing like 8th inning heroics on the world wide leader. 2 weeks ago it was Michael Barrett with a dramatic homerun off Isringhausen to give the Cubs a sweep over the Cardinals on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. Tonite it was Jacques Jones, of all people, who had the honors in front of a national audience. The new Cub hit a 3-run bomb to the leftfield seats just seconds after Matt Murton had tied the game with a single. The Northsiders would win 6-3 on Jones homerun.
What's with the walks?
The Cubs only had 4 hits on the nite. They did collect 6 base on balls from the Marlins pitching. 2 of those would be huge. Cedeno and Walker collecting walks prior to the heroics by Murton and Jones.
