Things were looking good for the Cubs as they were winning 2-0 after 4 innings and Wrigley Field was electric. But, 1B James Loney threw a wet towel over the optimism of the Cubs’ crowd when he cranked a grand slam off of Ryan Dempster and it was all down hill from there. Dempster worked the first 4.2 innings for the Cubs last night and he allowed 4 hits, 4 earned runs, walked 7 batters and whiffed 2 as he was the losing pitcher. Sean Marshall, Jeff Samardzija and Jason Marquis worked the last 4.1 innings for the Cubs allowing 3 earned runs and they all gave up a earned run apiece. Mark DeRosa was one of the few Cubs that showed up in this game as he was 2 for 4 with 1 run scored, a homer and 2 RBIs. Ryan Theriot also had a solid game as he was 2 for 4. Alfonso Soriano heard the boo birds in Wrigley as he was 0 for 5, whiffing twice. The Cubs are now down 1-0 to the Dodgers in this series.
