The legend of Tony Campana grows…

The gritty, scrappy, gutsy outfielder legged out an infield hit in the sixth inning to break up Chien-Ming Wang’s no-hit bid tonight, which would have marked the first time the Cubs were no-hit since Sandy Koufax did it (in a perfect game) in 1965. That’s the longest such streak, for the record. Campanarama to the rescue!

Starlin Castro hit his third homer in a week. He had three homers in all of 2010.

Matt Garza was striking fools out until he was taken deep – really deep – twice in the top of the sixth. Wang, who was making just his third start since 2009, was unfortunately better. Thus, Wang gets the enhancement.
