Drew Carpenter is not very good at pitching, but we already knew that. He struck a batter out, walked 2, gave up 2 home runs and 7hits. He somehow escaped only allowing 5 runs in under 5 innings. Esmailin Caridad struckout 3 and walked none in 1.2 innings, but gave up 3 hits and a run. Jensen Lewis gave up 2 runs in an inning of work while Jaye Chapman gave up 3 in 2 innings.
The ERA's of today's I-Cubs pitchers: 8.1, 16.88, 17.18 and 17.05. As a fan of baseball, I'd even be pissed off if I paid a few bucks to attend this game. They lived up to their shittiness too. They allowed 4 home runs, walked 4, struckout 7, gave up 15 hits and 11 runs. That's probably better than anyone expected.
Darwin Barney was 4-5 with a double. I haven't heard when he'll be activated, but I would guess it be before tomorrow's game.
Logan Watkins was 0-5 with a couple strikeouts. Brett Jackson's new swing was 1-3 with a walk and 2 strikeouts. Ryan Sweeney was 2-4 with a home run and Brian Bogusevic was 1-3.
Dallas Beeler threw 6 innings, allowed 4 hits and 3 runs. He struckout 4 and walked 3. Tony Zych threw 1.1 innings and allowed 2 hits and a run. He walked 1 and didn’t strike anybody out. Trey McNutt also threw 1.1 innings and he allowed 3 hits and 3 runs. He also walked 1 and struckout no one.
Matt Szczur was 1-4 with a walk and a strikeout. Arismendy Alcantara was 0-5 and struckout in 4 of those plate appearances. A very bad day for him.
Jae-Hoon Ha continues to hit quite well. He was 2-3 with a double and 2 walks. Rubi Silva had the big game going 3-4 with a double, home run and a strikeout. Jonathon Mota was 2-4.
Ben Wells had a very good night throwing 6 innings and allowing 5 hits and no runs. He walked 1 and struckout 5. Yeiper Castillo struckout 2 and allowed a hit in an inning of relief. Sheldon McDonald gave up 3 hits and a run in 1 inning.
Zeke DeVoss was 2-4 with a triple, walk and he stole his 5th base of the season. Taiwan Easterling and Javier Baez were each 0-5. Easterling struckout once and Baez twice.
The rest of the lineup quite well. John Andreoli was 2-5. Stephen Bruno was 2-4 with a double. Ben Carhart was 3-4 with a double and 3B David Bote was 2-3 with a double and a walk.
