Cubs yet to produce consistent offense

Cubs yet to produce consistent offense

|
CHICAGO -- Entering Wednesday, Cubs starters had the third-lowest ERA (2.99) in the National League, and the staff has posted a 2.05 ERA over the past 10 games. Yet, the team has squandered many quality starts -- like Tom Gorzelanny's effort Tuesday -- with the inability to produce consistent offense.

"We've had eight games already where we've scored two runs or less and we've lost them all," Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. "That's something we've got to get better at. It's very, very difficult to win when you don't score runs.

"Usually, when you see teams win with a lot of consistency, you're talking about five or more runs. Our offense should continue to get better as the weather warms up, as they start to get more at-bats. I have every confidence that it will. The sooner that we do, the more consistently that we'll win."
