Six runs and counting

The Dodgers have suffered their biggest blown lead (five runs) of the season. Cubs got one in the sixth. So far in the seventh, they have six more. Grady made the decision in the bottom of the sixth to pinch hit for Lowe, who had thrown just 83 pitches and limited the Cubs to four hits. But in the seventh, Yhency Brazoban couldn’t get anybody out, and neither could Jonathan Broxton, who faced five batters and gave up five hits but did manage to pick Derrek Lee off second base. Five batters and one pitching change later, the Dodgers still haven’t managed to get that last out. This was a game they needed to win with Carlos Zambrano waiting to face them tomorrow. Cubs 7, Dodgers 5, (still) top 7
