    I run it up after a Cubs victory and then take it down when I take down the USA flag at night.

    Not sure how I'm going to handle it for night games, but I intend to fly it after EVERY victory, and take a picture.
    That's ALOT of UGLY pictures...of you, not the flag.
    :P
    I won't be in all the pictures, don't worry.

    [size=12pt]Pie lifts Cubs to win in 15 innings[/size]
    Starter Dempster allows one hit in seven scoreless innings
    By Carrie Muskat / MLB.com

    PITTSBURGH -- If anyone understood exactly what Kerry Wood was feeling after Wednesday's game, it was Ryan Dempster.

    Felix Pie slapped a game-winning two-out, two-run single in the 15th inning to lift the Cubs to a 6-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second straight extra-inning game between the two teams. It didn't have to be that way.

    Dempster held the Pirates to one hit over seven scoreless innings, but did not get a decision as Wood, his replacement as closer, served up a game-tying home run to Jason Bay in the ninth.
    And here's the picture, taken between the 3rd period and OT of the Wild's loss last night.

    [size=12pt]Lieber, Soto lead Cubs to sweep[/size]
    Starter Hill struggles with command, pulled after three innings

    By Carrie Muskat / MLB.com

    PITTSBURGH -- Rich Hill did exactly what the Cubs didn't want him to do, and Jon Lieber did exactly what a veteran should.

    Geovany Soto and Mike Fontenot each hit two-run homers in a five-run sixth inning Thursday night to power the Cubs to their fifth straight win, a 7-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates, and complete the sweep. And it only took nine innings to do it.

    Soto posted his second career four-hit game to back Lieber (2-1), who picked up the win in 4 1/3 innings of relief of Hill. After back-to-back extra-inning games, Hill had to go deep. He didn't.
    And my dream of taking a picture after every win died on the couch as I snoozed last night.

    No W flag tonight.
    Zambrano didn't look very good, but he's a better pitcher than that so he'll rebound.

    Twins won at least.

    [size=12pt]Cubs benefit from error, top Phils in 10[/size]
    Cedeno scores on Utley's miscue as Chicago ends trip at 4-2

    By Carrie Muskat / MLB.com

    PHILADELPHIA -- The Cubs can use a day off.
    They played their third extra-inning game in the last six on Sunday, edging the Phillies, 6-5, in 10 innings to avoid being swept and finish their Pennsylvania road trip at 4-2.

    The offense has scuffled on this trip, and the game-winning run was a perfect example. With the game tied at 5 in the Cubs' 10th, Rudy Seanez walked Ronny Cedeno, who advanced on Ryan Theriot's sacrifice. Geovany Soto walked, and pitcher Carlos Zambrano, batting for Kerry Wood, hit what should've been a double-play ball.

    The Phillies did get the force at second, but Chase Utley's throw to first bounced for an error, allowing Cedeno to score.
    And here's the pic from yesterday....
