The Morning After

Sox Keep Streaking
Break up the Sox! Jake Peavy pitched a gem, a complete game shut-out to help the Sox edge the Nats 1-0 yesterday. Peavy gave up just three hits and struck out seven as he earned his sixth win of the season. It was also the Sox' fifth straight win and their ninth in their last 11 games, putting them at 33-34 with the possibility of hitting .500 with a win today. They also find themselves within striking distance once more at 5.5 games back of division-leading Minnesota. Carlos Quentin drove in the only run in the top of the fourth for the Sox win. The Sox go for what would be their second straight series sweep this afternoon as they send Freddy Garcia to the hill (12:35 p.m., CSN).

Cubs Blown Out
The Cubs were blown away as the Angels romped to a 12-0 win Saturday, holding the Cubs to just two hits. Ted Lilly gave up eight runs (six earned) over 5.1 innings of work to fall to 2-6 on the year. The Cubs made even more miscues in the field, making two more errors, bringing their total for the week to 11. The Bob Howry Experiment, Part 2 continued to fail as well as Howry gave up three runs (one earned) in relief. Said Lou after the game, "I talked to them a little bit today. What am I supposed to do, yell and scream? That doesn't do any good. Criticize people? That doesn't do any good. You've got to go out and play on the field. That's all you can do is play on the field. If not, you're going to get embarrassed like you did today." The Cubs, 3-5 on the current homestand, try to salvage a win and hit the road on a winning note this afternoon as Zambrano gets the start (1:20 p.m., WGN).
