Volstad, Wood Shine; Marmol Implodes – Wrigley Field 3/9/12

Posted on 09 March 2012 by Lou

Another great started from a Cubs starter – Chris Volstad tossed 3 scoreless innings, allowing just 1 hit with 3 K’s.  Kerry Wood made his spring debut with a scoreless 4th inning.  But then Carlos Marmol bucked that trend with a disastrous 5th inning.  He only recorded 2 outs (both by strikeout) before being yanked from the game.  He was charged with 4 ER on 4 hits including a home run.

I guess you have to take the good with the bad – let’s just hope this was a blip on the radar for Marmol this spring and that he can bounce back in his next outing…
