Cubs Crush the Astros

It was a pitcher's duel at Wrigley on Saturday, until the fourth inning.

That is when the Cubs exploded on Roy Oswalt for nine runs in three innings en route to a 9-1 win.

The Cubs remain 3.5 games back of the Brewers in the NL Central as Milwaukee snapped a four-game losing streak with a 2-1 ten-inning win over the Rockies.

Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-4 with 4 RBI to lead the way for Chicago.

Alfonso Soriano added a 3-run homer in the 6th to seal things.

It was the 14th win in 18 games for the Cubs.

Ted Lilly went 8 innings, giving up just one run in the win.
