Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 1, Reds 2 – September 13, 2011

Mike Leake dominated the Cubs for the second time in as many starts, which is actually really, really impressive (even if it is the Cubs). He ended Starlin Castro’s 13-game hitting streak in the process.

It was a thoroughly meh performance on the offensive side all around, with the exception of Carlos Pena, who had two hits and crushed a third ball. Ryan Dempster had an all right start, and Sean Marshall threw a scoreless frame.

    Meh, pitch counts are overrated if trainers and pitching coaches would get it out of their heads that pitcher’s arms are china dishes

    For reals, Dempster? 128 pitches for 7 innings?

  3. Jebecker

    yeah… mike quade isn’t really the best manager…

    128 pitches isn’t that high considering the 6 walk. He probably got a bit lucky to only give up 2

    I’d say 2 earned over 7 innings is better than alright. Six walks, and a lot of pitches, yeah, so he wasn’t very efficient. But, that’s a pretty good effort in my book. I’ll still never understand how Leak tops out at 87-90mph, and dominates. Oh yeah, free swingers will always make a guy look good.

      Bingo Steve!
