A couple of two-run doubles by Carlos Pena and Geovany Soto netted all the scoring the Cubs needed to beat a near-baseball team tonight.
Mike Quade pulled a Mike Quade by leaving Rodrigo Lopez in one batter too long, but the resulting damage was not enough to cost the Cubs the game. Still, if you’re not going seven scoreless and striking out 15 against this Astro lineup, I’m not sure you can call yourself a Major Leaguer.
