The Start

Greg Maddux looked good today, but I have not heard anything about his condition so far. Probably the play of the game was Lee's grab at first with a runner on third. The Cubs repaid Oswalt with a 3-1 loss with the help of Moises Alou, who hit his 13 HR of the season.

Another good sign was the bullpen work of Farnsworth, Hawkins and Borowski. They pitched really well, even if I was a little worried about Everett made contact against to end the game.

Looks like the Cubs will be 2.5 games back if the Reds hold on.
