Another well-pitched game by Sean Marshall, he seems to be more and more comfortable each outing, tonight was a tough no decision, too bad he couldn’t get the victory. With the Cubs bats silent lately it was a nerve racking game to watch, but Matt Murton came up with the big hit and Cubs win, Cubs win! Murton as he has shown since spring training doesn’t seem to get rattled in pressure situations, the kid is developing a reputation as a clutch hitter.
I hope to see Kerry Wood pitch tomorrow in a game situation at Fitch Park the Cubs Minor League complex here in Mesa. I will update you on this blog tomorrow afternoon on his progress and how he pitched. Without D Lee’s bat and with Rich Hill being called up from Iowa to replace Glendon Rusch in the rotation the Cubs could certainly use some help from the rehab crew here in Mesa. Wood shouldn’t have any problem getting his arm warm tomorrow as it’s expected to be about 95 degrees here.
Our DVD, Vince Lloyd “The Voice of Summer” was mentioned at the end of Carrie Muskat’s mailbag section on the Cubs.com website today. While the interview with Vince Lloyd was recorded in 2002 it has never been seen anywhere until we put it on DVD and released it through our website this spring. If you or any family members are fans of Cubs history, you will love the DVD.
Check back tomorrow for the Kerry Wood report.
