This kind of stuff happens early in the year, you just have to live with it.
I don't know why we saw Reed Johnson in the game to face Hanrahan. Hanrahan is much tougher on righties and Johnson is really bad vs righties. It was a waste of an at bat which could have been the tieing run. I maintain that Blake Dewitt should be the starter vs right-handed starters.
Lots of lucky hits by the pirates. You can expect the hits to fall that often when you are striking out as much as they did today.
Extra special "JEEZ" to Marlon Byrd, who can't even limit himself to one out per at bat in the 9th. The most painful thing though, was the 2nd and 3rd nobody out chance that was wasted by the Cubs earlier.
Nice job Soriano connecting for the Cubs first home run of the season. Maybe that will start somekind of groove.
