Game Summary for April 7th, 2007
- Score: Cubs defeat the Brewers, 6-3
- Player of the Game: Aramis Ramirez. His two run homer was the only real offensive highlight of the game, the offense was solid as a whole but no one really stood out. Zambrano and Blanco each had RBIs, which is interesting, but not enough to earn them this honor.
- Subject of Lou's Wrath: Jacque Jones. Not really sure why, but he's starting off with a poor April again. Better to get on his case early, so when he's still horrible a month from now I can say I told you so.
- Comments: Zambrano was solid today, though not stellar. Three earned runs in seven innings, two walks, six K's. He still has a way to go until he gets into top form. The offense played well today, as everyone in the starting nine had a hit other than Blanco. He did have a sacrifice fly for an RBI though, so he did his part. Soriano needs to get hot soon, going 1-for-5 with 2 strikeouts is not what we're paying him for.
- Magic Number: 159.
