Enhanced Box Score: Diamondbacks 5, Cubs 2 – April 24, 2014

Enhanced Box Scores

No series win for the Cubs after going up 2-0, and having an easy win slip away yesterday, and a could-have-been-better game today.

Edwin Jackson had his best start of the year, but, even in so doing, he was frustrating early, doing the two things that have plagued him early in games since he came to the Cubs: he was out of the zone too often (walks) and, when he came into the zone, he was up too often (hard hits). That gave the Diamondbacks three early runs, and that’s all they would need.

But they got a couple more later on off of, yes, Jose Veras, who simply doesn’t have anything right now. Some time to collect himself may be necessary at this point.


The Cubs had a shot to break things open right from the get-go, loading the bases against the young righty on the other side, but they squandered that opportunity, and there really weren’t too many more.

Some of the repeat issues on the year popped up today …
