NLDS, Game 2

The Cubs had a promising start in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field when Geovany Soto hit a 2-run home run in the 2nd inning.  But the lead didn’t last long as Ted Lilly struggled in the bottom of the 2nd giving up a 3-run home run to Chris Young (remember when he threw his glove on the mound after this pitch?).  Overall, Lilly gave up 4 runs in the inning and the Diamondbacks take a 2-0 Series lead with an 8-4 victory.  The Series will move to Chicago and Wrigley Field for Game 3.
