The Gist: Don't Call it a Comeback

He's the guy that so many people love to hate. Love him or hate him, you have to admit that when he gets a chance to be a regular in the lineup, the guy produces. Jacque Jones had a huge 2-run double in the Cubs' 4-run 7th inning to tie the game, then scored the go ahead run on an error by Brewer, Scott Linebrink. Cubs win, Cubs win, 5-3

Rich Hill had another quality start, allowing 3 runs in seven innings while striking out 9. D Lee, Jones and Kendall all had 2 hits, and closer, Ryan Dempster looked nasty in the end, pitching a perfect 9th for his 22nd save - his 10th in a row. Big, big win, especially the come-from-behind variety. If we can sweep this series, someone better check the Brew Crew's pulse. Tonight's game (7:05pm CST) has Chaz Z (14-10, 3.95) against Ben Sheets (10-4, 3.39). Go Astros.
