Here’s Your WHPO Summer Sports Minute….

MLB…

the Brewers blanked the Cubs 5 – 0…scoring all 5 runs in the top of the 9th.  Rubber match this afternoon at Wrigley.

the Cardinals lost to the Pirates 9 – 2.  The series continues with a doubleheader today in Pittsburg

and Jason Giambi hit a pinch-hit home run leading off the ninth inning, as the Cleveland Indians won their fifth straight with a 3-2 victory over the White Sox.


The Danville Dans swept the Hannibal Cavemen Monday night 1-0 and 12-1 in Hannibal.  That improves their record to 38-16, giving them a 4.5 game lead over
division foe Quincy Gems, who lost at home to Terre Haute 3-6.  The Dans magic number is 2 to clinch the top spot in the West Division.
Danville secured a playoff spot Sunday with an 8-4 win at Springfield,
combined with a loss by Hannibal.

Danville’s 38 victories is two short of tying the Prospect League record for most wins in a season. The Dans have six games remaining including four at home
