Cubs-Phillies: Round 2 - Good game, but Cubs still lose

The losing pitcher in this 13 inning game was Jeff Samardzija, the former star wide receiver from Notre Dame. He pitched well last year (26 games, 2.28 ERA), but tonight was not his night, giving up a walk-off 3 run homer to Jayson Werth in the 13th.

It's the Phillies first 10 game winning streak since 1991 and they can do no wrong right now. They got 3 perfect innings (3 IN, 0 hits, 0 BB, 5 SO) from Chan Ho Park (!). Yes, he kind of re-invented himself as a decent reliever last year with the Dodgers, but he had struggled this year. If they can get quality work out of Chan Ho Park, then they are really rolling.

As for the Cubs, they still aren't hitting. They hit the Nationals pretty hard, but that doesn't really count. Getting rid of Mark DeRosa and adding Milton Bradley was obviously a bad decision, at least in hindsight. Alfonso Soriano has become Rob Deer this season (Soriano 2009 - .243, 16 HR, 38 RBI, 88 SO, 7 SB) (Rob Deer 1992 - .247, 32 HR, 64 RBI, 131 SO, 4 SB). Ok, he's scored 53 runs, but that's still still only 44th in the league. He has hit pretty well the last few weeks, so maybe that's a start.

They are really counting on Aramis Ramirez, who has been back from injury after missing a few months. If he's healthy, he'll hit. He has always put up good numbers, but it is unclear whether he could bring the rest of the lineup along with him if he does heat up. They have a talented lineup, but they haven't put it together yet this year. Luckily for them, the NL is weak this year beyond the Dodgers and Phillies, so they have a chance.
