Tough Luck Lilly

Hard to believe Ted Lilly is in the midst of a four-game losing streak.

But the Cubs’ Ace hasn’t won a single game this month…and his last victory came April 24 at Milwaukee.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Lilly hasn’t pitched well enough for some wins. He has, in fact, but the Cubs give him virtually zero run supportfailing to score s single run for him Thursday..and have averaged a measly two runs during his last five starts, which, better explains the lefty’s 1-4 record.

Most importantly, though, Lilly’s been huge stop-gap. Since 2007 he’s 25-12 following a Cubs’ loss…with the Cubs going 34-19 in those 53 outings, including Thursday’s 1-0 win.

Lilly has seemingly made a full recovery from offseason shoulder surgery…which gives the Cubs have a fighting chance at the division, but only if they can muster enough run support for its Ace.
