Game two of the three game series with the Cubbies. We can only hope it goes as well as yesterday's. One of those rare games when we had good offense, good pitching and good defense. How rare is that?

Buehrle hasn't won since July 30th and he is 1-8 in his last 16 starts, but he has been pitching pretty good lately. He has a 3.51 ERA in his last 4 starts.

Jake Arrieta had had a great season, he is 8-5 with a 2.81 ERA.
