Cubs In Haiku: Pirates 4, Cubs 0

One bad inning means
A loss for T.R. Lilly
Cubs get just four hits

Ted Lilly recovered nicely after giving up four runs in the first inning on two walks and three
hits.  But the Cubs bats could never figure out Charlie Morton – who gave up 10 runs in just one inning during his last Wrigley Field appearance on August 14th. 

But today, in the first half of a day-night double header (making up a rain out from August 16th) Morton gave up just 4 hits in a complete game shut-out of the Cubs.

The Cubs and Bucs play again starting at 7:05.  Carlos Zambrano will take the mound for the Cubs against Jeff Karstens.
