Baker confers with Barrett in the third inning after Cubs starter Matt Clement leaves the game with an injury. Clement was complaining of back and neck pains.

Corey Patterson is congratulated by Kerry Wood and other teammates after hitting the first of two homeruns. Patterson broke an 0-for-20 slump to lead off the Cubs' half of the first inning with a single.

Patterson had a huge night at the plate, going 4-for-6 with two homeruns, a single, a double and a stolen base. He was intentionally walked (above) in the eighth inning by Expos reliever T.J. Tucker.

Jason Dubois, one of the promising young farmhands from Triple-A, made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday and reached first on a fielding error by Expos first baseman Brad Wilkerson.

The always happy-go-lucky Kent Mercker pitches in the fifth inning.

Derrek Lee ducks inside of a pitch from Expos starter Sun Woo Kim.

Nomar Garciaparra appears in game 28 since coming over from the Boston Red Sox. Garciaparra finished 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Expos.

Aramis Ramirez cracked his 28th and 29th homeruns of the year Monday, eclipsing his mark of 27 in 2003. He finished 0-for-5 Tuesday.

Ramirez had a less than spectacular night Tuesday, going hitless in five at-bats. His lone bright spot was an RBI groundout in the seventh inning, which tied the game at 5-5.

Michael Wuertz, another September call-up, came in to pitch an inning and a third Tuesday. This is the right-hander's fourth different stint with the Cubs this season. The Cubs used a total of eight different pitchers in Tuesday's loss.
