Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 6, Padres 2 – September 27, 2011

Enhanced Box Scores

Well, Mike Quade got his wish for Matt Garza, as the latter evened out his record at 10-10 to finish the season. Garza was strong, as usual, and he’ll go into 2012 as the Cubs’ de facto ace.

The Cubs were set to lose a pitchers’ duel when the bats exploded for five runs in the 8th and 9th innings. Starlin Castro reached base safely for the 39th consecutive game, and hit safely in his 10th straight – that’s his fifth double digit hitting streak on the season.
