Ouch. Again.

Travis Wood and Derek Holland were locked in quite a pitcher’s battle until the 8th when Wood (apparently) started to get into a little trouble and Shawn Camp couldn’t bail him out. That proved to be the difference, as the Cubs went on to do the teaser-rally thing in the bottom of the 9th, scoring a couple on a pinch-hit, bases-loaded double by Nate Schierholtz. That rally all came with two outs and nobody on, but the game ended on a Darwin Barney liner to center that Craig Gentry dove and caught. If it drops, the game is tied. If the ball skips past him, the Cubs win.

Freaking ugh. That hurts.

The Cubs offense logged just two hits and no walks in seven innings off of Holland. Whatever. Derek Holland’s mustache is ugly anyway. It’s no Carlos Villanueva.
