UPDATES & NEWS
Jeff Samardzija gave up four runs (three earned) on six hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts against the Giants on Monday.
Samardzija was finally able to pick up his first win of the season on Monday, as he improved to 1-4 with a 1.68 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through his first 11 starts. He has been one of the best pitcher to take the mound in 2014 and now that he has found the win column, hopefully his great pitching can lead to much more in the future. The Cubs ace will look to start a win streak when he takes on the Brewers on Sunday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
