Cubs beat Sox in game one, five more to go


Cubs 4, White Sox 3 was the final score in yesterday's game. Chicago is buzzing with excitement as its two teams play each other six times over a ten day period. Derrek Lee and Ramirez tied the game with back-to-back homers in the seventh off Octavio Dotel. Ramirez then sent Wrigley Field into an uproar with a leadoff homer in the bottom of the ninth that gave the weary Cubs a 4-3 victory. A.J. Pierzynski and Jermaine Dye of the White Sox both hit homers.

The Cubs announced that Carlos Zambrano, who had to leave his previous start Wednesday with a sore shoulder, has a minor strain. He had an MRI on Friday. The Cubs will determine today what course of action to use for Zambrano, who will miss his next start Tuesday. The Cubs are now 30-8 at home. Dotel had allowed just two homers in 33⅓ innings entering the game.

It's going to be an interesting week in Chicagoland!
