After a couple solo homers (Jose Reyes, Starlin Castro) accounted for the only two runs of the game through six and a half, Geovany Soto bounced one just high enough over third base to score Alfonso Soriano, who’d hustled his way to the plate (and I mean hustled all around – he hustled to first on a ball up the middle, he hustled to second on a wild pitch, he hustled to third on a grounder to first, and then he hustled home … ok, those latter two are a stretch, but it was still a lot of hustle). From there, the Cubs poured it on. And then the rain poured it on, and the game was called in the 8th.
Jeff Samardzija had dominating stuff tonight, but ultimately a mixed game.
