The Cubs dropped their seventh straight in unremarkable fashion tonight at the Great American Ballpark. Matt Garza returned from the disabled list only to find a tough strike zone and an eager Reds lineup. The rust, I’ll presume, is primarily to blame.
The Thief handled the Cubs’ lineup adequately, “scattering” (I’ve always hated that euphemism) 10 hits and one walk over eight innings. Here’s a shocker – the Cubs and Reds each had 10 hits, and yet *somehow* the runs weren’t even close. Go figure.
At least Albert Pujols didn’t hit a walk-off homer.
