Enhanced Box Scores


I don’t think you can ever fairly say you didn’t see a Carlos Marmol implosion coming. But, well, I didn’t see this one coming. Not with the Cubs cruising. Not with Marmol so good in his last half dozen outings. Not with a three-run lead.


But, implode he did, spoiling Ryan Dempster’s good night like it was a Matt Garza game.
