    Y mayo lo empezaron como abril..., perdiendo
    Los Cachorros empezaron el mes de mayo igual que el bueno de abril, es decir, perdiendo ante los Cerveceros de Milwaukee. Si el pasado 2 de abril los Cachorros abrían dicho mes perdiendo 8-2 ante Milwaukee en el Wrigley Field, ayer se repetía la historia...
  • Another bad start for Cubs, another loss

    Another bad start for Cubs, another loss
    Sunday night's game in Busch Stadium began as a carbon copy of Rich Hill's first-inning implosion on Friday, only this time it was Jason Marquis playing the role of struggling starter with control issues. Like Friday night, it ended with the Cubs...

    Cubs can't convert rally in 9th inning

  • Soriano hot, Cubs cruise past Diamondbacks

    Soriano hot, Cubs cruise past Diamondbacks
    Baseball works in mysterious, misunderstood ways, especially when it comes to the mythology that has become the Cubs. Bedraggled as a team after a 2-6 trip and with their highest-paid player booed with a .188 batting average, the Cubs have just...

    Soriano homers twice as Cubs beat Pirates
    There's nothing like a workout with their personal punching bag (that would be the Pittsburgh Pirates) to make the Cubs feel better about themselves. Take Friday's 7-4 exercise: It was the seventh straight victory over the Pirates this season and the...
  • Cubs close 8-2 homestand with win

    Cubs close 8-2 homestand with win
    The Cubs did something Sunday they hadn't done in exactly 30 years — win eight of 10 games on a homestand. And Jason Marquis did something he hadn't done in exactly a month — win a game. Of course, it helped to have Pittsburgh as the...
  • Cubs lose homer battle with Astros

    Cubs lose homer battle with Astros
    HOUSTON — One of the biggest reasons for the Cubs early-season success has been Ryan Dempster's smooth transition from closer to starter. But Dempster couldn't overcome his own wildness during one bad inning Tuesday night in a 4-2 loss to Houston...
  • Big night for 'Big Z' in Cubs win over Pittsburgh

    Big night for 'Big Z' in Cubs win over Pittsburgh
    For a starting pitcher, nothing causes more angst than failing to get through the fifth inning with a lead. Carlos Zambrano had done that against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his last start, triggering some talk that he was battling a stiff shoulder. He was...
  • Soriano comes through in extras, Cubs top Dodgers

    Soriano comes through in extras, Cubs top Dodgers
    Alfonso Soriano spent the last few days going through the spin cycle after his costly error Sunday in Pittsburgh led to another heated debate over his superstar reputation. But whether he was being criticized on TV or radio, in the newspapers, blogs or...

    Cubs stage 8-run comeback to beat Rockies
    Among the things you don't expect to see at Wrigley Field these days are standing ovations for Jim Edmonds, three-inning outings by Ted Lilly and a comeback win by the Cubs after they trailed by eight runs in the fifth inning. But in the 100th...
