Cubs Continue To Get Good Pitching

Despite losing last night to the playoff-contending Giants, the Cubs keep pitching well.  Big Z turned in another solid performance.  Zambrano did not allow a run in yet another quality outing.

The only run of the ballgame came when rookie catcher, Buster Posse belted a blast off Andrew Cashner into the center field bleachers.  Minus that one pitch, the pitching staff continues to deliver.

Last night marks the tenth straight game in which the Cubs’ pitching staff allowed 3 or fewer runs.  Cubs’ pitchers have a 1.42 era during that span.  The only team with a better era in the last ten games is San Francisco, with a 1.01 era. 

Tonight, the Cubs will send Randy Wells to the mound.

The Cubs will need another solid pitching performance if we are to beat the Giants.
