I don’t really know what you can say about losses like this when Edwin Jackson is on the mound. He cruises for four innings, and then it’s hit-hit-hit-hit, not all of which are rockets, but they count just the same. And before you know it, he’s out before the seventh inning, and the game is lost.

At least Anthony Rizzo gave us something to enjoy.
