What If We Give It Away?
Cubs Do Their Usual Collapse, Lose 7-5
The Cubs got a semi-respectable start from rookie Casey Coleman, and even rallied from a 5-3 deficit to tie the game in the eighth on Kosuke Fukudome's two-run homer (his second in two days!). Alas, the Reds scored twice in the bottom of the inning on some Keystone Kops-caliber defense, including Fukudome's first error of the season — with an assist from Aramis "Why Block the Ball with My Body?" Ramirez. The fundamentally sound Cubs of last week disappeared, and the bumbling Cubs we know all too well tallied yet another loss.
