That guy pitching for the Cubs today looked a lot like Mark Prior, you know the Mark Prior we all knew in 2003. I watched the rain shortened game on MLB-TV while trying to get a little work done, it was nice to see Prior have a solid outing like he did today. After the first inning he really seemed to find his groove, a definite step in the right direction.
The Cubs will host the SF Giants tomorrow at Hohokam with Carlos Zambrano scheduled to start. If you are headed to the game at Hohokam remember that the Cubs wives are hosting the 10th annual food drive to benefit Paz de Cristo. The food drive begins tomorrow morning at 10:30am, and will run through the top of the third inning. The first 300 fans making a donation of 10 non-perishable food items or $20, will have the opportunity to randomly select a Cubs autographed baseball in a grab bag giveaway, with a limit of 2 grabs per person while supplies last.
In addition, a silent auction will be held from 10am to 1pm outside of Gate D at the ballpark. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on various autographed memorabilia in addition to game-used items. All proceeds will benefit Paz de Cristo.
Paz de Cristo serves those in need in Mesa and the East Valley with a daily meal service, food boxes and empowerment programs.
