The Cubs lost both games this weekend in very cold weather. More bats are breaking than ever including 3 in one game alone!
Friday 10/18: Cubs fall to Rockies 4-2
Unbelievably well-pitched game by Matt who struck out 11 of 15 batters in 4 no-hit innings of work, collecting his 100th strikeout for 2008! Unfortunately the Cubs bats weren’t working and the Rockies came back against the Cubs relief and pulled out a win from behind.
Saturday 10/19: Cubs lose to Marlins 15-7
Tough game with the Marlins scoring early and often. Final proof that in wood bat leagues good pitching absolutely beats good hitting. Unfortunately the Cubs didn’t have the pitching this game. Jonathan came out strong with 3 doubles, joined by Eric, Lucas and Madhav hitting for extra bases once each. Singles by Ben, Kile, Matt and Eric. Matt scored twice and Eric drove in 3 RBI’s.</p>
