Cubs Sweep Braves

The offensive onslaught continued last night in Atlanta. Powered by the bats of Aramis Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano, the North Siders continued their dominance of the Braves as they swept them for the second straight time this year.

The win gives the Cubs eight straight road wins and leaves the Cubs just one game under .500 on the road, which as we have stated here on 100yi before, is pretty monumental considering that they were 8 games under at the break. Overall, the team is  27 games over .500…

The series totals were pretty impressive as far as the numbers are concerned…3 games, 3 wins, 29 total runs, 38 total hits, on only 4 HRs…The Cubs played great all around baseball with such a balance. Starting pitching continued to be solid too with Ted Lilly gettng the “W” and bettering his record to 12-6.

We are going to stick to the positive, staying away from the benches clearing incident. Mark Kotsay hit for the cycle for the Braves…it always seems when someone hits for the cycle, it usually propels a team to a win, but the Cubs were just too much. Tom Glavine supposedly pitched last night, but like the rest of the year, no one really could be sure it was the real Tom Glavine…or at least the guy who used to be Glavine. In 13 starts this year, Glavine has only two wins….2! Not a misprint.

The Cubs head to Miami to face the Marlins for the weekend…Zambrano to start, as Dempster gets an off day. 7:10 Florida time….Tune in later for a preview…

    I’m still at work right now. . . ugh. . . I’ve been trying to plug the site in the Cubs forums on ESPN.com. . . but nobody seems to be biting. . . I’ll keep pressing on, especially to a few guys who I’ve been chattin’ with everyday who seem to get banned every other day. . .
