Derrek Lee has been on a tear.  Tuesday against the Tigers, the first baseman extended his hitting streak to 20 games, and with a pair of knocks, raised his average to .292.  Unfortunately, Lee’s effort didn’t make for a Cubs victory.  Chicago held the lead going into the 9th, but Kevin Gregg surrendered a two-run game-winning homer to pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn.  That sent Tigers fans home happy.  Cubs fans?  We’re left to wonder when the team will find a closer whose appearance on the mound doesn’t fill us with dread.
