The Cubs were hoping to sweep the Brewers on Thursday afternoon but bad pitching made sure that did not happen. Four pitchers gave up eight runs (six earned) on 14 hits. Five walks and two errors by the defense did not help out but the team be fielding the ball much better than they did.
Bad pitching by Carlos Zambrano, Sean Marshall, Jeff Samardzija and John Grabrow did the team in as they allowed eight runs to score in the 8-6 loss.
The Chicago Cubs kicked things off right at Wrigley Field as the beat up on the division rivals to the North on Monday afternoon. On a day where new owners met the fans as the came through the stadium, it was the big bats that that excited those fans even more.
Powered by home runs off the bats of Xavier Nady, Jeff Baker and Aramis Ramirez the Cubs offense powered the team to a 9-5 victory and a huge win as the team came off a disappointing road trip to begin the season.
Carlos Zambrano proved once again why he should not start an opening day game for the Cubs as he got rocked for eight earned runs and the Cubs lost 16-5. Just a terrible way to start the 2010 season.
It was another bad night for the Cubs as the Phillies roughed up Jeff Samardzija and Sean Marshall for 12 runs in the first four innings. Pedro Martinez pitched well enough and changed speeds nicely to keep the Cubs offense guessing at the plate. Four games back, can this team get on a roll anytime soon?
