Chicago Cubs, 1 @ Pittsburgh Pirates, 4
This game was scoreless heading into the bottom of the fourth inning. Cubs starter Rich Bordi had yet to give up a hit. But Jason Thompson and Tony Pena had back to back singles, and Lizard King Jim Morrison cranked a three run homer to break the game open for the Pirates.
Larry McWilliams was far from perfect, as he gave up four hits and six walks over seven innings, but he held Chicago to one run. The Cubs shot themselves in the foot by grounding into four double plays.
