7/9 Ted Lilly's night

Friday was Ted Lilly’s shortest start of the season and shortest since Sept. 5, 2008, when he went two innings against Cincinnati. He gave up seven runs, five earned, on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings. He’s been mentioned in trade rumors by teams looking for starting pitching help and his record, which will be 3-8 if the Cubs lose, isn’t reflective of his efforts. He’s received an average of 2.31 runs of support per staff, the lowest mark in baseball.
