Aren't You Glad We Had Singletary And Not "LT"? -- Chicago Pain Daily Recap (5/07/10)

Recap for Friday - May 7th, 2010

In case you haven't heard (and who hasn't?!?), former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor was arrested Thursday on charges of raping a 16 year-old prostitute.

After numerous issues involving drug abuse, Taylor now potentially adds rape and prostitution to his list of offenses.

The Blackhawks continue their series against the Vancouver Canucks tonight.  After an embarrassing loss in Game 1, the Hawks have rallied back to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference Seminfinals, thanks to some aggressive play. 

Hawks winger Dustin Byfuglien is coming off a hat trick in Game 3, and looks to provide Canucks' goalie Roberto Luongo with more frustration in tonight's Game 4.

 Tonight's game time is 8:30PM CT, from the lovely city of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates were able to break out their brooms Thursday night, as the perennial NL Central doormat Pirates completed a three-game sweep of the Cubs. 

Randy Wells had what may be considered the worst start of his career,  surrendering three walks, five hits, and six earned runs in just two innings.  Wells began the game with eight straight balls before throwing a strike.

Jeff Gray allowed four more runs -- two earned -- in his two innings of relief following Wells' departure.

The Cubs offense was once again stymied by an inexperienced pitcher, as the Pirates' Brian Burres allowed just three hits in seven shutout innings.

The Cubs begin a weekend series in Cincinnati tonight at 6:10PM CT. 

Makes you wonder if Dusty Baker will have any "exit advice" for Lou Piniella...

White Sox Logo1256077880.gif

The White Sox offense was cold as ice once again, dropping the opener of a four game series with the Blue Jays, 2-0. 

The White Sox managed just two hits against Jays' starter Dana Eveland, and a ninth inning double by Alex Rios off former Cubs closer Kevin Gregg. 

John Danks had a respectable outing, allowing 8 hits but just two runs in seven innings of work.  Danks struck out seven while walking two.

The Sox continue their series tonight against the Blue Jays at 7:10PM CT, from U.S. Cellular Field.

Well, that's it for today's update.
