Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 7, Brewers 2 – June 27, 2013

Enhanced Box Scores

Don’t let that silly run in the sixth inning fool you: Matt Garza was ridiculously dominant today. He was missing bats left and right, and commanding the game completely.


Starlin Castro had his second straight two-hit day after his day off. Just sayin’.

Trade season makes everyone a little conspiracy-prone, but I can’t help but find it interesting that Dale Sveum threw James Russell again today in a blowout. I’m sure it was partially about getting him work – he’d thrown just twice since June 16 (though one of those was yesterday). But Russell got the call on back-to-back days in starts by Scott Feldman and Matt Garza (*cough* tons of scouts in attendance *cough*), even though today’s game was well in hand.
