Enhanced Box Score: Rangers 2, Cubs 6 – April 18, 2013

Chicago Cubs

More shocking: the Cubs win, or the game got off without any kind of interference from the rain?

Trick question. It was the scoreless 9th from Carlos Marmol.

Carlos Villanueva was dominant once again, giving up only a couple of solo homers, and the Cubs and Rangers defied the weather odds by getting a full game in today. Welington Castillo had a nice 4-4 day, and Anthony Rizzo killed the ball all day (including a 475 foot homer). Alfonso Soriano also got his first homer/RBI of the year.

You’re not going to crap on the offense too hard on a day when they “exploded” for six runs, but they sure left a lot of runs out there on the bases. They went just 2 for 15 with runners in scoring position, and left 10 on base (over just 8 innings – yo).

But, hey, a win’s a win. And this was a good one over a good team. Here’s how Cubs fans watched this game …
