Bottom of the fifth, Soriano slams a hanging curveball into the left field basket. Now if he can string together a few more hits over the next couple days, all will be well.
Tejada just crushed a solo shot off Zambrano. Did we prove yet that Tejada did steroids? I'm pretty sure he's still doing them in the clubhouse today. Or maybe it's just B-12 that he's shooting into his butt.
Derrek Lee with a 397' shot deep into the left-center bleachers. Cubs lead 3-2.
Jose Cruz Jr. is on to pinch hit for the Astros. This guy has been around the block like few other in the majors. Is he the hitting equivalent of Mike Morgan? Possibly. But hey, he gets to spend every day with his dad. Do you think when they're on the road, Jose Jr. and Sr. go out to strip clubs together? Maybe they're religious, and they just go to church together every day. I find that hard to believe though. With Jr.'s relative crappiness and the fact that he's stayed in the big leagues so long, I'd have to say that he's juicing. Religious ballplayers don't juice. Jr. dropped the Lord and picked up the HGH. That does not make Sr. happy.
Kerry Wood and Kerry Wood's beard come on for the save in the ninth. Two groundouts and a strikeout of Tejada later, and it's another Cub victory. Keep rocking the beard Kerry.
