In the early going Saturday, we got one hell of a pitching duel, as Edwin Jackson and Stephen Strasburg matched each other pitch for pitch. But the Cubs unloaded on Strasburg in the 5th, mostly with two outs, and he’d worked so hard that inning that his day was done.
Perhaps not wanting Strasburg to feel left out, Jackson let the wheels come off a bit in the 6th, and he couldn’t finish the inning after loading the bases (one of those runners scored after Jackson left). It was still Jackson’s best start of the year, but it could have been much better.
