Cubs-Phillies: Round 3 - Cubs break out

The Cubs scored had 13 hits, 9 walks and scored 10 runs. Their 2-5 hitters (Ryan Theriot, Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez and Milton Bradley) went 8-16 with 7 runs, 4 RBI and 8 BB off of Jamie Moyer, and a bunch of relievers (including Brad Lidge). They did not hit a home run, but still scored a lot of runs, which is really good sign.

The Phillies can be forgiven for losing a game, but they need to watch out for the Braves, who are red-hot (beat Tim Lincecum tonight) and only 5.5 games out. The Mets probably don't pose a threat, but the Marlins and Braves are both very talented and could do very well in the 2nd half.
