The Chicago Cubs have taken their fourth straight and pulled even for the season with a 5 – 3 victory over the Washington Nationals today.
Rich Hill improved to 4-1 on the season and his ERA dropped to 1.73.
The Cubs offense was patient today, drawing in eight walks.
Angel Guzman takes the mound tomorrow as the Cubs look for the sweep. The Cubs will play the Pirates on Tuesday at 8:20 EST. Ted Lilly will take the mound. On Wednesday, Jason Marquis will start. The series finale concludes Thursday with Carlos Zambrano taking the mound. I’ll be at Thursday’s game. I wasn’t too happy when I found he was pitching… If they hadn’t brought up Guzman, I would have seen The Kid pitch.
