Ted Lilly had just a pair of stumbles, but they were enough to do decisive damage, as the southpaw had to be perfect to match opposing starter Joel Pineiro's stellar start. Lilly wasn't the benefactor of much support, however, as the Cubs managed just one extra-base hit and weren't able to plate a run.
