Enhanced Box Score: Reds 7, Cubs 4 – May 5, 2013

Enhanced Box Scores

The story was largely the same today, as the Cubs lost to the Reds and were swept at home – their 9th straight loss at home to the Reds.

Edwin Jackson was marginally better than his last time out, which isn’t necessarily saying much. The bullpen gave up a handful of insurance runs, which ended up being the difference in the game (Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless inning, though). The Cubs didn’t do much with runners in scoring position, and then teased us with a rally in the 9th (each of Castro, Rizzo and Soriano came up as the possible tying run, and all three popped out to the shallow outfield). This is what the 2013 Chicago Cubs do.
