Cubs Return Beatdown Favor to Nationals

Aramis Ramirez hit two three run homeruns to power the Cubs past the Washington today. One day after the Nationals pounded Cubs pitching to the tune of 13 runs, it was the Northsiders who did the pounding.  The 9-2 victory could have been much worse as through the first three innings the Cubs left the bases loaded twice and two on in the first.

Ryan Dempster notched his 15th victory of the year, which is a career high…but it was Dempsters candid comments of the shot to win 20 games this year that is endearing him to the Wrigley faithful…

“I don’t know. I’m not worried about that. It’s a great personal accomplishment, but my motivation is one reason and one reason only and that’s to get to the playoffs and win the World Series,” Dempster said. “I will take 15 wins and a World Series and I’d be the happiest player in baseball.” (ESPN)

Dempster is on a Cy Young pace and would be at the top of the discussion if not for Brandon Webb of Arizona having a monster year.

You know where to go to get the professional recap…I am going to say what matters most. The Cubs will go for their EIGHTH straight series win tomorrow. If they can win series for the rest of the year and not get too upset about dropping a game or two, then the pressure is on everyone else.
