What's going on?

•A.J. Pierzynski and Jake Peavy get in one another's grills.

•Alfonso Soriano actually steals a base -- his first of the season.

•Doug Davis forgets that sometimes on a bunt it's good to throw to first base in a timely fashion.

•Pierzynski legs out a triple -- for the first time in two years.

But coming as absolutely no surprise:

Cubs lose.

Full denial:

Both Peavy and Pierzynski downplayed their dust-up, with Peavy saying: "We're just competing. It's part of the game."

That's classy and being a good teammate but wouldn't it have been a lot more fun if they actually went at it?

Premature congratulations:

"Way to go, Jake!!"

-- former Cubs catcher Michael Barrett, before realizing there wasn't an actual fight.

No surprise, Part II

The White Sox have now won 17 consecutive interleague series.

Big bopper at first:

Talk about being on fire. The guy homers for the third night in a row to cap off a big series.

Yeah, that's right, we're talking about Carlos Pena.

For the White Sox:

Things get a lot tougher with the Washington Nationals coming to town.

Can you believe that sentence is actually true?

For the Cubs:

Off to Kansas City

What lies ahead? Honestly, who knows?
