Game 1 ( Cubs 8 - Pirates 6 ):
Why does Jim Tracy continue to run "White Flag" Wasdin out in close games? If he provides the two innings of no run ball Chacon did in the second game the suspended game at least goes into extra innings.
A good outing by Armas gets wasted when the bullpen implodes. Grabow and Bayliss were brutal at best.
Jason Bay had a game to forget going 0 for 5 with 4 K's, striking out to end the game when he was the tying run.
On the bright side, Doumit continues to be hot. Paulino and Sanchez seem to be getting their bats back in order. Paulino went deep yet again.
How can an infield single score a runner from second? That was awful, I am speaking of the call at first. I think the ump called him safe because Bautista double clutched the ball before throwing.
Why didn't LaRoche make a throw home? Great base running by Jones, but the entire play was ridiculous.
Game 2 ( Cubs 7 - Pirates 1 ):
Snell had a tough outing giving up 4 runs in 5 innings of work.
It looks like the whale ate Jonah's lunch the last two games. He gave up 3 runs without recording an out in this one.
Chacon performed well out of the pen going 3 innings allowing no runs.
Freddy, Bay (2) and Doumit had the only hits for the Pirates. Doumit went yard with his lone hit, he is white hot.
