One to forget

Tonight's game is just one to forget. Nothing really went well for the Cubs today. On the field and on other fields, as the Astros had 1 more out to go to beat the Brewers tonight, but then gave up back to back homers to Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder to lose the game 7-4.
In the Cubs game it was tied until Mr. Carroll came up and hit a Grand Slam verse Rich Hill. Carroll not known for his homer power as he has 2 this year and both verse the Cubs, got a fast ball straight down the middle and it barely made it over the wall. After that it was just down hill as Michael Wuertz was the only Cub not to give up a run, Sean Gallagher came in and got hammered (now probably headed back down to minors) and Scott Eyre wasn't any better in his time on the mound tonight (2 bad appearances in a row). About the only good thing to come out of the night was that Felix Pie went 2-4 (though he had 2 k's).
Hopefully tomorrow Cubs starter Sean Marshall can do better, but like Hill Coors isn't probably the best place for him to excel in. He will be facing Tim Harikkala who has not pitched in the MLB in a few years, so that is a bonus for the Cubs.
