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.
