Overnight Update

Last night I made it through the top of the sixth, and went to sleep with the Cubs leading 3-0, and before I crashed to the pillow, said to the TV, "Hold 'em right there."

The Cubs did -- well, barely -- and beat the Padres 3-2 for their third win in a row.

Kerry Wood nearly had another of his famous meltdowns on the mound, and I'll have a lot more to say about that later this morning.

The win, coupled with the Cardinals' loss to the Marlins, put the Cubs in second place, though they remain 2 1/2 games out, since the Astros beat the Mets.
