Rockies series recap

Sunday, May 9, 2004

The Rockies series concluded on a high note today, following a Corey Patterson 13th inning RBI single.

The Rockies came to town on Friday and faced Carlos Zambrano who was electric. He threw a complete game, two-hit, shutout that was magnificent. He took a no-no into the fifth inning, gave up a single, and then another in the ninth. On the offensive side of the ball, the Cubs posted 11 runs, with Corey Patterson driving in four. Despite the RBI's Corey is still looking pretty bad at the plate recently.

On Saturday, Greg Maddux lost a tough one. The Cubs managed only three runs, but Maddux gave up four runs over seven. The Rockies pitcher, Jason Jennings took him deep for a two run homer. While the Cubs hit three home runs, but they were all solo shots (including mamoth back-to-back dingers by Sosa and Alou).

On Mother's Day Sunday, (I love you Mom), the Cubs played one of the most boring games I have seen in recent memory. The game had many dramatic moments, it was just boring. There were three rain-delays, lasting a total of 44 minutes, and the game went 13 innings. It was neither a pitcher's duel, nor a slugfest.

Sergio Mitre went six innings, allowing three earned runs on 10 hits, flirting with disaster most of the game. The Cubs' bullpen pitched well after Mitre left, allowing one run in seven innings (Joe Borowski gave up a solo shot in the 10th, in - you guessed it, a non-save situation.) For the offense, Aramis Ramirez was probably the hero of the game, hitting a solo homer in the bottom of the 10th, with two outs to tie it up. He took a game that was nearly over, and gave the Cubs a second chance.

In the 13th inning, Derrek Lee got a single to lead off the game, and the Cubs did something they haven't done well all year, they played small ball. Michael Barrett sacrificed Lee over to second. After an intentional walk to Ramon Martinez, Glendon Rusch sacrificed Lee to third. Following another intentional walk to Damian Jackson, Corey Patterson got a nice single to drive in the winning run.
