Enhanced Box Score: Cardinals 2, Cubs 3 – July 28, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

A sneak-attack, pinch-hit bunt by Reed Johnson was the difference today, as the Cubs finally took down the Cardinals. Dale Sveum, usually rather reserved, got the boot today on an obviously blown call at first base, which cost the Cubs an additional run.

Jeff Samardzija gave up just three hits and struck out seven in his six innings of work, which is awesome. But he gave up an incredible six walks over that stretch, so it wasn’t all good.

Carlos Marmol got the save (his ERA is under 5!), and once again, someone else stepped up.
