Enhanced Box Score: Phillies 8, Cubs 7 – May 17, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

Why must the Cubs do that? Why must they stage an amazing comeback, only to fall just short? At least they have some fight, I guess. And I had a nice time at the game with BN’er Rob.

The Cubs’ big hole started early behind, yes, Chris Volstad. One way or another, I think Volstad’s going to be taking a break from the rotation. He struggled through two innings tonight, and was relieved in the third by a modestly effective Casey Coleman. Michael Bowden had a decent outing, too.

But Blake Parker made his debut, and it was … mixed.
