Tribune staff reporterKerry Wood is accustomed to pitching under pressure, but his first relief appearance this season in a crucial situation turned to disaster for the Cubs on Sunday at Coors Field. Wood entered a tie game in the sixth inning and promptly gave up three...
Tribune staff reporterOh, so this is the way the Cubs' grand plan was supposed to look: tons of runs, very good starting pitching and a lopsided score. Sunday's 10-1 victory over Atlanta, under the heading of "It's About Time," broke a six-game losing streak, though the truth...

Tribune reporterChanging lineups for the third time in five games, maybe Lou Piniella finally has found one to his liking. He should, after newcomer Reed Johnson looked at home in the No. 2 spot and even got Derrek Lee going behind him, the pair combining for six hits...
Tribune staff reporterThe two vices vexing the Cubs all season were an inability to beat left-handers and a lack of extra-inning victories. But they killed two birds with one stone Wednesday night with a 4-2, 10-inning victory over San Francisco, moving a game ahead of...
Tribune staff reporterAfter ripping Cubs fans last month, Reds announcer Marty Brennaman proved he's an equal-opportunity offender, proclaiming during a loss to Atlanta on Sunday that Cincinnati "may never win another game." But the Reds proved him wrong Monday night with a...
Tribune staff reporterAny resemblance between the Jason Marquis who St. Louis cast aside during last year's postseason and the one who threw seven shutout innings against the Cardinals on Saturday is purely coincidental. He looks the same, has the same New York accent and...

Tribune staff reporterTheories abound as to why the Cubs suddenly have begun to play like a true contender in the National League. Was it the Zambrano-Barrett fight? Lou's tirade? Ted Lilly's plunking of Edgar Renteria? Everyone seems to have an answer, but few have...
Tribune staff reporterThe Cubs season is spinning out of control, leaving manager Lou Piniella searching for answers just three weeks in. Milwaukee right-hander Jeff Suppan handcuffed the Cubs offense Tuesday night in the Brewers 4-1 victory, dealing Rich Hill his first...
Tribune staff reporterCarlos Zambrano went winless in April 2006 but still managed to tie for the National League lead with 16 victories by season's end. After Saturday's 8-1 triumph over St. Louis at Busch Stadium, Zambrano ended another subpar April with two victories....
Tribune staff reporterCubs manager Lou Piniella tried to launch a pre-emptive strike Monday at Wrigley Field when asked about his team's hot start, warning Cubs fans not to act like … well, Cubs fans. "This is a long season," Piniella said. "Let's not get all crazy...
Tribune baseball reporterOne relies on power, the other on precision. One predicted a Cy Young season, the other only that he would do the best he could. One is a hulking right-hander from South America, the other a mid-sized left-hander from Middle America. Carlos Zambrano...
