Davis has strong start
Three Cubs run enough to win 
Quite unexpected
Doug Davis got his first win in a Cubs uniform after a performance that surprised Cubs fans as much as it surprised the Yankees.  We were fortunate enough to witness the game along with more than 42,000 fans - about 1/3 of whom were cheering for the visiting team. 
Aramis Ramirez had two RBIs and Reed Johnson made a game-saving catch in the top of the ninth so that excited Cubs fans could stick around to sing before leaving Wrigley.
