What a difference a day makes. Like I said yesterday, Shawn Estes had to have a good game. Well, who would have thought one run in 8 innings good. This was a very complete game for the Cubs. The hitting came around today and also no mistakes in the field( Even though Corey was about a step away from a major blunder). The Cubs scored 11 runs with home runs from Sosa, Choi and "The Horn".

Bellhorn finally looks like he is out of his slump. He is 4 for 7 with 5 rbi's in his last four games. If he can continue to hit like this the Cubs will be much better off. Also Paul Bako added another RBI and that makes 15 for the Cub catching core. It seems to me like Hundley did not hit 15 RBI's in his two seasons with the Cubs.

Carlos heads to the hill tomorrow. This game is very important. For one it would give the Cubs the chance to win the series and two it would mean the bottom half of the pitching staff could have back to back wins with Wood and Clement coming up.
