Cubs Fall 13-7 In Game 1 Of Doubleheader

CHICAGO (AP) Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowand drove in three runs apiece and the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 13-7 Tuesday afternoon in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

The Giants’ offensive outburst surpassed their season high of 12 runs, which they set at St. Louis on June 2. They also stretched their winning streak to six games.

Burrell had three hits, scored two runs and homered. Rowand had two hits, scored twice and hit a three-run double.

Ryan Vogelsong (6-1) got the win despite allowing a season-high six runs in five innings.

Cubs starter Doug Davis (1-7) left after just 4 1-3 innings, allowing 12 hits, 10 runs and walking three. Carlos Pena homered for Chicago.

    On a team with a history of horrid pitching, Davis is the absolute worst I’ve ever seen. He’d have an ERA over 4 against a little team!
