Cubs Win, Put Your Brooms Back in the Closet

Cubs Win 3-2, Dempster rejoices.

After a 2 hour weather delay, Sunday had a promising start. McCutchen drew a 2 out walk in the 1st. Ditto for the Pittsburgh Kid.

Overbay stepped up and went Over-Pena for a double to right field, giving the Bucs an early 2-0 lead.

Real good first two ABs for Overbay.

Jeff Karstens couldn't hold it though, giving up a solo HR to Aramis Ramirez in the 2nd #alltradesweregood, followed by singles to Pena and Campana. Pena advanced to third on a Cedeno throwing error, his first error in 31 games. Cubs catcher Koyie Hill knocked in Pena on a sac fly, leveling the game at 2-2 after 2.

Ryan Doumit, the model for the Altoona Curve logo, was injured on a play at the plate and replaced by Snyder (when are we going to start protecting superstar catchers like Doumit and Quintero?).

In the third Fukodome doubled and a sac fly struck again later in the inning as the Cubs took the lead, 3-2.

After the third a whole lot of nothing happened unless you count @dbacksGate.

As @laclips said, 2 out of 3 ain't bad:

Pirates head to the Big Apple for a 4 game set with the Mets at Citi Field. Hopefully Charlie Morton can be electric on Memorial Day vs. Dillon Gee. God Bless Our Troops, happy holiday everyone.
