kerry wood didnt pitch today. heres proof:
whipping from every direction. Mostly, it was blowing out.
On what might have been a pitcher's nightmare at Wrigley Field, Lilly kept the ball in the park and held the Houston Astros down Saturday as the Chicago Cubs continued their surge with a 9-3 victory.
The Cubs' offense roughed up All-Star Roy Oswalt. Aramis Ramirez had four RBIs and Alfonso Soriano hit a three-run shot -- Chicago's first homer in 11 games.
"I respect that lineup, and for us to go out there and the guys to put those kind of at-bats against one of the top pitchers in the league, I certainly wanted to take advantage of an opportunity like that," Lilly said after winning his fourth straight start.
The left-hander, one of the Cubs' top offseason acquisitions, is 5-0 in his last six starts
