Cubs rookie reliever Neil Ramirez (Virginia Beach) continues to be lights out for the Cubs bullpen, literally. Since giving up a homerun to Gordon Beckham of the White Sox on May 6, Ramirez has not been scored upon. In fact, in 16 games totalling 14 innings since making his ML debut in late April, that homerun has been the only run he has allowed in the bigs. He has 23 Strikeouts-in fact, in ever game so far, his SO total has been better than or equal to the number of innings pitched. His ERA, which ballooned to 2.25 when he gave up that homerun in his fifth major league game, has now shrunk all the way to a mind-boggling 0.64.
