Garza gave up five runs (three earned) on seven hits and struck out five in six innings pitched. Tonight's crowd of 41,326 was the largest crowd of the season at Wrigley. I was at the game and can attest that it was a full house, which was surprisingly full of Tigers fans who would continually chant in groups, "Let's go Tigers, let's go!" It was extremely irritating, in my opinion!

The Cubs and Tigers will play the rubber game of the series at 1:20pm CT on Thursday. Travis Wood will make the start for the Cubs and try for his first win of the season.
On another note, Men's Journal magazine asked 100 MLB players questions such as, "Who's the most hated player in baseball and Which city has the best groupies?" (The answers are A.J. Pierzynski and Chicago). Here's a link to the survey results, which are pretty entertaining and accurate, for the most part!
Here are some photos I took at the game:
