Jeff Samardzija was forced out of the game in the third inning on Sunday after surrendering eight runs on eight hits and two walks against the Brewers on Sunday.

After allowing just 14 earned runs over his first 11 starts, Samardzija coughed up eight runs on Sunday lasting just three innings before getting the boot. He now falls to 1-5 on the year, but is still the proud owner of a 2.54 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 78.0 innings. As long has be can continue to limit his home runs allowed ( 4 HR) and keep his walks down (23 BB), there is no reason to think his hot start will be coming to an end. The Cubs ace will look to get back on track when he takes on the Marlins on Saturday.
