A Good day
Cubs stay above .500 with a great pitching performance by Kerry Wood. Wood went for a complete game, 1 run, 3 hits, and 12 K's. Sosa also had a great day, which he seems to do everytime Wood is on the mound. Sosa hit home run number 15 for the year after driving in the tying run on a single earlier. Sosa also had a great catch at the wall to rob a hit. Who knows maybe Jose Hernadez is also starting to hit again, today he hit his 2nd home run with the cubs.

This is a good way to head into the Atlanta Braves who come into town for a four game series. This series could be the one that makes us or breaks us. If we can show that we can beat one of the best teams in baseball right now, that would not only help our record but help us mentally especially without Corey Patterson. By the end of this series hopefully we will be back in first place. Estes goes tomorrow and he is due to have one of those great games where we all say "where did that come from."

Go Cubs, beat the braves cuz thats the one team I can say I truly hate.
