Jeff Samardzija allowed two run on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over 7.1 innings against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He was forced to settle for a no-decision after the bullpen gave up five runs in the ninth inning.
The Cubs bullpen imploded again? You don't say. Samardzija has to be beside himself as he has yet to earn a victory despite limiting the opposition to no more than two runs in a start and owning a 1.53 ERA which is inside the top 10 among National League starting pitchers. He'll try for his first win again Sunday against the Reds.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jeff Samardzija will start on Tuesday for the White Sox.
The riots in Baltimore were deemed bad enough that tonight's game should be postponed. Regular starters Ubaldo Jimenez and Samardzija will be the starters for tomorrow's contest. Owners of Samardzija need to keep in mind that he will likely miss an upcoming start due to his role in the brawl with the Kansas City Royals. Analysis: Colby Conway
