It's ALIVE!!!!!

The bats once again made their presence know. The Cubs beat the Diamondbacks 11-3 with 15 hits in a well pitched game by Clement. He gave up three runs on 7 hits, four walks, and struck out six. While not as stellar as his last few outings it got the job done. Derek Lee's bat is now turning around also. He went 5-5 against the Diamondbacks with five RBI"s. Sosa also contributed with 2 RBI's. With Alex Gonzalez out for at least six weeks with a fractured wrist, the Cubs are calling up Damian Jackson. Roman Martinez will be the everyday shortstop for Alex.

Zambrano is starting tomorrow against Colorado. So hopefully the Cubs can go on another win streak and take over Houston for first place in central which we are two games back now. Go CUBBIES!!!!!!
