Lee: 'I'll be in the lineup'

D-Lee says there's no story and that he'll be ready to go for tomorrow's doubleheader. He came out of the game after the fifth, when he doubled to left-center and scored a run. It was a recurrence of the neck spasms that have bothered him for the last couple of years. He suffered neck spasms April 26 at St. Louis forcing him from the game, and he missed 2 starts right after that. He also missed 5 starts from May 6-10 with the spasms, which are caused by a bulging disc. An MRI May 10 confirmed the diagnosis. "I'm good; I'll be in the lineup tomorrow," he said. "There's no story. I'm good. Just a tweak. I got out as a precaution." Lee has a batting line of .281/.356/.514. He leads the Cubs in homers with 17 and RBI with 56. Other tidbits from today's 5-2 win over the Cards: --Ryan Theriot has hit safely in 25 of his last 27 home games. He enjoyed his 31st multihit game of the season. That leads the team. His OBP is up to .353. --Ted Lilly recorded win No. 100 of his career. He has a home ERA of 1.86. He also has a team-high 14 quality starts. --Jeff Baker went 2-for-3, driving in his first 2 runs as a Cub with a bases-looaded single in the first inning.
