Maholm Starts, and Dolis Finishes Cubs Victory

Paul Maholm’s Cubs career got off to a frustrating start for Maholm and Cubs fans alike.  Luckily for all involved Maholm has taken that frustration out on his opponents in each of his last three appearances.  The Dodgers were today’s victim as Maholm carved up Los Angeles over 6 innings en route to a 5-4 victory.  Alfonso Soriano had a solid day at the plate going 3-for-3 with two doubles, crazy I know, and two RBI’s.  David DeJesus didn’t let Soriano have all the fun at the plate as he finished the day a home run short of the cycle as he went 3-for-4 with an RBI.  The Cubs of course held a one run lead as the game moved to the ninth inning, how anyone could expect anything different after yesterday’s debacle is beyond me as baseball always seems to work in mysterious ways.  However unlike yesterday, Rafael Dolis was able to shut the door on the Dodgers for his second save of the season, and a big Cubs win to start the home stand.  Full box score and highlights after the jump.
