So the Cubs now have to win in 4 to fulfill my prediction that they'd sweep if they won Game 1. It was a great pitchers duel, and Lou pulled Z out after 6 to save him for his next start on 3 days rest.

The Cubs are now on the brink of the playoffs after a combination of a Brewers error-fest last night, losing to San Diego 9-5 and looking terrible; and the Cubs shutting out the Reds in Cincy 6-0, behind El Torro, Carlos Zambrano. Soriano led off the game with a HR, and with the Reds essentially fielding a minor league team with Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey out, it was all they needed. Even Mark Bellhorn, ex-Cub, was called up to play for the Reds. Cubs now have 42 HR's in September after much criticism of their lack of power thru the summer. As I write this, San Diego lead the Brewers 4-3 in…
