Jeff Samardzija really wasn’t too bad, and I’m willing to cut Brian Schlitter some slack. But it’s still a loss.

Yeah, Travis Wood pinch-hit heroics! And yeah bullpen! And yeah Starlin Castro!
Travis Wood was a stud today, and the Cubs shut down the Phillies win the series.
Edwin Jackson got knocked around early, and the Cubs didn’t have anyone on base when they hit their three homers.
Jake Arrieta was amazing tonight, I think.
Get out of Pittsburgh. Now.
Jason Hammel finally had a rough outing. It’s understandable.
Take that, Gregory Polanco’s debut!
Nothing really special about this one. Just a standard loss.
The streak is over.
That’s five in a row! Junior Lake came up big.
Jason Hammel has been just so very good this year. And the Cubs walk it off for their fourth win in a row.
And that’s a sweep!
Another one-run, come-from-behind win for the Cubs. Who is this team?
