Enhanced Box Score: Astros 1, Cubs 7 – August 13, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

Take that, elderly lady with the flu and a limp!

Yes, even the Cubs can beat up on the Astros this year, and so it was this evening. Anthony Rizzo busted out the four-hit game, and Darwin Barney and Alfonso Soriano busted out the bombs.

I don’t even care that he was facing a lineup decorated by guys who may have been invited to try out for the team earlier today; Jeff Samardzija was dominant tonight. Think of it this way: the Astros would be a really good AAA team, and I would be impressed if Samardzija dominated a really good AAA team like that on a nightly basis.
