So remember that lead?

Not so much anymore. Two-out buggaboo for Jason Bergmann.

In the third, a one-out single to Soriano, who dribbled the ball just past a diving Bergmann. Groundout from Floyd to advance Soriano to second, the second out. Then ...

"The 2-2 pitch to Lee, and it's drilled to left-center. It carries over the ivy -- his second home run of the year, and the Cubs are within 4-2."

Derrek Lee: Not a bad player.

Aramis Ramirez followed with a double to left, and then, the killer. Michael Barrett hit a bouncer that Zimmerman back-handed at third. A nice play ... until he air-mailed Dmitri Young at first, an error. Would've been the third out of the inning. Instead, Lee scored -- though he did plow over Cubs third base coach Mike Quade on the way. Cubs within 4-3.

In the fourth, after Brian Schneider threw out Mark De Rosa trying to steal second, Izturis hit a double, and was left at second after Zambrano grounded out. But then: Soriano with an RBI double, Cliff Floyd with an RBI single, and the Cubs lead 5-4.

Nationals batting in the top of the fifth. Felipe Lopez led off with a double.

More later.

Barry - You mentioned your involvement with the NY-Penn league. I grew up in Batavia, home of the mighty Batavia Muck Dogs (although they were the Trojans back then). Visit their web site if you want some of the coolest minor league stuff around.

Oh, and Go Nats!

Minor correction-
I think it was Ramirez who nailed the third base coach. Lee already scored off his homer.

Has anyone noticed that the current (i.e., up-to-the-minute, on MLB Gameday, revised as each at-bat is taken) batting average of Bergmann is .167 ... while the guy who pinch hit for him today (Restovich) is now at .148 and the guy who preceded him in the line-up (Casto) is now at .159 ?

Maybe we could get Livo back, as a pinch hitter ?
