Thursday was a bad day for the Cubs, as each split squad suffered a bad loss, with players getting injured.
The D’Backs roughed up Ryan Dempster in a 12-2 drubbing. Dempster surrendered 3 ER on 8 hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work. He did have 3 K’s though.
The Rockies also handed the Cubs a 7-5 loss. Rodrigo Lopez gave up 2 ER on 6 hits in his 3 innings of work.
Darwin Barney was a late scratch with a leg injury. Ian Stewart had a similar issue. And Blake DeWitt was hit with a pitch on his hand and it is unknown how severe the injury is.
Wow – what a dousy. Let’s hope the weekend produces better results for the Cubbies…
