Cubs lose 6-3 to Cardinals on Kerry Wood Appreciation Day

The Cubs couldn't secure a win Sunday in the rubber match against the Cardinals and lost 6-3.  Justin Germano started for the Cubs and allowed four runs on ten hits while walking one and striking out three batters over 5.2 innings pitched.

Today was Kerry Wood Appreciation Day at the Friendly Confines.  Wood's son Justin threw out the first pitch to his father and Wood was joined by his entire family to sing the 7th inning stretch.

The Cubs are trying to avoid a 100-loss season, which would be the first time since 1966.  Manager Dale Sveum said, "With nine games left, we've got our work cut out for us.  Six are on the road and three at home, so we've got to find some way to come up with four wins."

Tomorrow the Cubs have an off-day before starting a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field starting Tuesday at 7:40pm CT.  Chris Rusin will start for the Cubs and try to earn his second win of the season.
