Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 6, Dodgers 7, August 5, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

The Cubs lost a back and forth battle, featuring crappy bullpens, exciting come backs, 9th inning homers, and Cubs youngsters being awesome. Brett Jackson’s debut was a success, with a walk, two singles, and a run scored (and, hey, only one K … ). It ended with a Hanley Ramirez walk-off single in the 9th, though. Grumble.


Justin Germano had another nice start – short, low-scoring, keeps the Cubs in the game. He’s never going to be more than a 5th starter type (in fact, that’s probably the best you could hope from from the soon-to-be 30-year-old), but it would be nice to have him in the mix next Spring coming off a quality two months here at the tail end of 2012.
