5/10 Lilly: "We're just not getting it done"
You’ve probably heard this before: The Cubs are having trouble scoring runs and Monday’s game was the sixth in the last seven in which they scored three runs or less.
“We have to find a way to get better,” Derrek Lee said. “Guys are trying. It’s not working out right now. We’re in a tough stretch but all you can do is keep pushing.”
The players keep saying that. When do the Cubs fix this?
“Hopefully, losing will bother us enough to do something about it,” Ted Lilly said. “I don’t know what it is. At some point, we’ve had enough and we’ll do something about it. We’re trying. We’re just not getting it done.”
The St. Louis Cardinals aren’t going to wait for the Cubs to figure things out.
“Right now, what matters is winning tomorrow,” Lilly said. “After we do that, let’s win our next game. For me, let’s focus on right now.”
