Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 8, Brewers 2 – May 13, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

The Cubs salvaged a win today, their first in 11 tries at Miller Park. The offense got a late start, but then never stopped.

Jeff Samardzija was effective, but he wasn’t particularly efficient. He wasn’t getting many calls on the edges of the plate, his pitch count elevated, and he was done after the fifth. The bullpen was solid, and it was nice to see both Kerry Wood and Michael Bowden throw scoreless frames.

Bryan LaHair continues to “slump,” although he ripped two balls today that turned into outs (that’s called your BABIP regressing to a more sustainable level).


And it seems like the Cubs are trying to solve the mysteries of the natural universe…
