Jeff Samardzija was as good as I’ve seen him tonight, mowing down the White Sox and still throwing 97/98 with a nasty splitter in the 9th. He got his shutout, and he needed just a touch over 100 pitches to get there.
The top of the Cubs’ order did its part, with each of the first four batters having a great night. Listening to Hawk and Steve Stone choke this one down was just the cherry on the top.
