MLB Game #9: Giants vs. Cubs


Today, I am going to the Cubs game with a group of guys from work. We're getting an early start and heading to one guy's apartment for some pre-game entertainment including bags, and grilling out. This will be the first time I've had bleacher seats since the renovations following the 2005 season. Our plans are to sit in right field. Appears we have some early morning rain. Hope this clears up.

This afternoon's starting pitchers are Matt Cain (5-7) and Jason Marquis (6-5).

As the Cubs' start the final series before the All-Star Game, here are the current National League Central Division standings.

Chicago Cubs 55-37 ---

Milwaukee Brewers 51-41 4 GB

St. Louis Cardinals 51-42 4.5 GB

Cincinnati Reds 44-49 11.5 GB

Pittsburgh Pirates 43-48 11.5 GB

Houston Astros 42-50 13 GB

Game update! The Cubs defeated the Giants, 3-1. Aramis Ramirez belted a 3-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning. Kerry Wood picked up the save after surviving a shaky ninth.
