Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 2, Pirates 0 – July 23, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

Offense was in short supply tonight, which was to be expected of the Cubs, given their recent struggles. But the Pirates have been clicking for a while now, so it was a surprise to see them dominated so easily. That’s what Jeff Samardzija can do when he’s on, though, and he was most certainly on. Carlos Marmol came on for the save, and actually dominated (in his Carlos Marmol way).

The Batman and Robin duo of Alfonso Soriano and Starlin Castro – no, seriously, those were their costumes last night – teamed up on both the Cubs’ runs.
