The Cubs continue their spoiler tour, this time not just spoiling a series for the Braves, but also spoiling Dan Uggla’s hitting streak. I suspect they won’t be invited to his birthday party any time soon. The defense, which was sparkling at times, let down Matt Garza, who otherwise had a fine start. Carlos Pena went deep, which is just swell.
Darwin Barney clearly wants me to shut up about his future, because he’s been on fire of late. He was dominant today at both the plate, and in the field (including an incredible diving catch to rob Uggla).
