Fonzie learns to run

Alfonso Soriano, after a talk with Lou Piniella and some on-air criticism from Bob Brenly, managed to go 3-for-4 with a walk. After turning a possible triple into a marginal double earlier this week, Fonzie turned a double into a triple with a head-first slide.  It would be help if his defensive effort improves as well.

Carlos Silva was great, giving up just 2 hits in 7 complete innings.  But even after the Cubs increased the lead to 6-1 with a 3-run seventh inning, the bullpen made us worry in the eighth when the Mets scored 2 more runs to move within 3 of the Cubs.
