Game 48: Cubs 12 Pirates 2

There are some nights when it's imminently obvious why the Cubs are a first place team and we're not. Last night was one of those nights. Zach Duke started on the mound and got pummeled. Sean Burnett followed and got pummeled. Marino Salas closed things out and got pummeled. Carlos Zambrano, on the flip side, did not get pummeled and he shut us down over six innings. It was just an all around ugly baseball whomping that we were on the wrong end of last night. I can't really think of any other way to put it.
