  • Cubs hold A's Hitless Thorugh 9 2/3, Win in 10

    Cubs pitchers Sean Williams,Angel Guzman,and Dave Aardsma combined to hold the Oakland A's hitless through 9 inning this afternoon.Dan Johnson broke up the no-no with a single off John Koronka with 2 outs in the 10th for Oakland's only hit.

    The Cubs won it in the bottom of the frame on an RBI double by Brandon Sing scoring Jamal Strong.Strong led off the 10th with a double.The next 2 batters were put on base to load them up when Sing delivered the game winner.

    The last known recorded Cubs no-hitter in spring training was on February 26,1970,when a group of rookies no-hit some small college 5-0 in 7 innings.

      I saw something a bit different from that on the TV.

      In the 9th, after a leadoff double and sac bunt, the A's intentionally walked the bases loaded with 1 out. The Cubs failed to score that inning.

      Sing saved the game in the top of the 10th when Koronka was trying his hardest to give it away. After giving that lone hit, he walked the next batter and then threw a wild pitch, moving the runners to 2nd and 3rd. Sing made a lunging catch of a laser beam line drive to keep the game scoreless.

      In the 10th, Strong hit a leadoff single, then Sing launched a broken bat drive that just missed leaving the park, hitting high of the wall and bouncing away from the leftfielder, scoring Strong from first.

      Oddly enough, I never bought a Sosa jersey, even during his best years.

            Actually, that was Casey Kopitzke. Jamal Strong led off the bottom of the 9th with a double. He was then sacrificed to 3rd, followed by the 2 intentional walks.

              Great game

              We watched that game and enjoyed every pitch...from both sides. Then the way the Cubs won in the tenth was in perfect step with the aura ov the event!
              Nothin' like fun at the ol' ballpark!

                Did you know that it was a split squad playing in that game? and most of the everyday starters played the Royals and scored 9 runs?

                And in that 2nd game Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 10 straight at-bats? and Michael Barrett knocked in six runs with a three-run homer and two singles?

                I am not too worried about the "producing" at this point... keep the starting lineup healthy... and give the pitchers some vitamins.... Just not the ones Barry used.

                BELIEVE

                  Yes, I did know it was a split squad game. But the everyday starters were split up pretty evenly.

                  I think the starting infield, aside from Lee, was playing the Royals and the starting outfield was playing the A's. It makes sense to keep those groups together when there is a split squad game.
