NL Central Notes: Berkman, Cubs, Lucroy, Astros

The light-hitting Pirates again didn't generate much offense on Friday, scoring just one run against the Cubs.  Fortunately for the Bucs, that lone run was all they needed — five Pittsburgh hurlers (started off by A.J. Burnett's scoreless 5 1/3 frames) combined to shut out Chicago in a 1-0 result.  The Cubs have now suffered 10 consecutive losses.

      It’s like how Andy Pettitte is a Yankees legend, or something.

      Nice choice of legends. 1 who cheated the system with performance enhancers, followed by 2 drunkards.

           Was just odd. Clemente, Good with community and fans, even when he passed was on a humanitarian mission. Mays was great with the fans and not known for vices, plus good with communities.

          Those 2 just don’t belong in a list with those 1st 3.
