5/2 Elias note on D-Lee
Derrek Lee’s bases-loaded single on Saturday broke a 5-5 tie in the eighth and helped the Cubs rally to beat the D-Backs, 7-5. Major League pitchers should not face Lee with the bases loaded. According to Elias Sports Bureau, in the last 12 months, starting with a grand slam last year off Ricky Nolasco on May 3, Lee has 11 hits in 17 at-bats with the bases jammed, including 2-for-3 this season.
