Cubs Crush Crosstown Club, Ozzie Picks a Fight, and More Saturday White Sox Tidbits

The Cubs beat the Sox 13-0. Oh well. The Marquez Era began well, with a strikeout of Alfonso Soriano to lead off the game and then on through two scoreless innings. Though for a "groundball pitcher", didn't seem to get many of those.... Matt Thornton then pitched a scoreless inning before heading off to the WBC. After that, though, things fell apart for White Sox pitching as Wasserman and Dotel each gave up 3 hits and 2 runs over an inning pitched. Something named "Williams" provided a brief inning respite, before Adam Russell got absolutely crushed for 8 runs (6 earned) without retiring any of the eight Cubs he faced, though he was hurt by Lillibridge's inability to deal with a double play ball.

The offense didn't provide much to write about either. Lillibridge staked his claim to the leadoff position by striking out three times in four AB. Wise had a couple hits, including a double, while batting in the second leadoff position. Thome had a double. That's about it.

Box.

In other news, Ozzie is picking a fight (again) with Ted Lilly (again). The Blue Jays, owners of the 20th pick in the draft, are possibly renewing their interest in Orlando Cabrera. Tomorrow, the game against the Dodgers will be televised on CSN, MLBN, and KCAL at 2pm (CST) as the two clubs officially open Camelback Ranch.
