John Lackey gave up a first-inning home run to Kole Calhoun.
Over the course of his eight innings of work, Lackey gave up no other runs, just two other hits, one walk, and he struck out six. He wants that effing ball.
Offensively, the Cubs weren’t about to be mystified by Jered Weaver’s 80mph fastball tonight, with contributions coming from all over, including from the Angels’ defense. Great defense by the Cubs in this one, too.
Just a solid win all around for the Cubs, their eighth in a row.
