I did not get to see the game, because I went home to visit my parents for Easter weekend, but a 7-2 win looked dominating on the Baseball Tonight Highlights.
If Mark and Alex keep getting on base at the top of the lineup then the sky is the limit for this team. Clement just looked nasty on the Highlights. 10 K's and he looked in control.

Kris Benson has pitched great for the Pirates this season, but he would rather not see the Cubs again. The Cubs have scored the only 6 runs against Benson in his first 4 starts.

I love the fact that Choi is hitting well. He went 2/4 with 2 RBI's. The more he plays the better I like him. He is really making an early run at rookie of the year, if he can continue to play at this level. 11-6 and the Cubs send Prior to the hill in game two.

Prior will look to rebound from the start on Monday. Prior will face off against Kip Wells who pitched well in a loss to the Cubs earlier this season. The Cubs have now scored 44 runs in four games. The bats are just alive.
