Hiroki Kuroda had nothing tonight, giving up seven runs in 3 2/3 innings. There’s no excuse for giving up seven runs to the light-hitting Giants at pitcher-friendly Dodger Stadium. Kuroda has been awful for a couple weeks now. The Bums tried to come back but fell 7-6. Diamondbacks lost at San Diego, so no harm done in the NL West standings.
Great game at Miller Park tonight. The Cubs have big-time players — Soriano and Lee — who stepped up in a big game. 6-4 over the Brewers and a two-game lead in the Central. One more win in that 4-game series would be sufficient for the Cubs.
Ryan Braun of the Brewers has 29 homers now. Tremendous hitter. If I were building a team, he might be my first draft pick. Who would you go with?
