Enhanced Box Score: Reds 4, Cubs 2 – September 6, 2011

Enhanced Box Scores

Rodrigo Lopez does what he does, which is pitch well for the first time or two through the order, and then give up some runs. It wasn’t too bad this time – mostly because Mike Quade pulled the plug on Lopez in the sixth.

The Reds may have shopped around for a better starter, but tonight, Mike Leake lifted his team on is back, and locked up the Cubs’ offense for most of the night.

The Cubs’ bats were handcuffed until the 9th inning when a two-out infield dribbler by Starlin Castro set the stage for a game-tying two-run bomb by none other than Bryan LaHair. That was all swell, but the Cubs lost the game in the 13th.
