Ramirez Rockets the Cubs to win over the Pirates


Aramis Ramirez Aramis Ramirez #16 of the Chicago Cubs reacts after swinging and missing a pitch against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field on May 29, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs defeated the Pirates 3-2.

Aramis Ramirez ended his homerless drought.  It took 155 At Bats but he blasted the ball over the bleachers to help the Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2

Ryan Dempster picked up the win to even his record at 4-4.  Well done! 

With yesterdays’ win, Coach Quade said,”If we can excecute like that on a regular basis, and get Campana’s speed involved, we should be ok.”  That’s just paraphrasing, but he must have been reading the blog a few days ago.

Maybe there should be more rain delays.

The Cubs start a series today against the Astros.  It’s a must win series for the Cubs if they want to stay in the race in the Central.  The Cubs are trying to battle back into the .500 position and the game today in Houston shouldn’t be a problem.

    Seems like every Cub home game this season has involved rain. Nice to see it bright and sunny today. And is that really A-Ram? The REAL A-Ram?

    Perfect day today in Wrigley. Unless you look at the score.

    Amen, what happened? All right, injuries. That’s what’s doing the Cubs wrong.
