For the second time this season, Chris Rusin was called up from the minors after the Cubs dealt a pitcher, and helped lead the Cubs to a 4-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night.
David DeJesus and Starlin Castro, the top two players in the Chicago Cubs’ batting order, had four hits apiece on Saturday night. And neither table-setter scored.
Jeff Samardzija thought he pitched well enough to win. Except for two pitches, he probably would have.
The Arizona Diamondbacks came home and created a new way to celebrate big hits. Now that “The Snake” has started rolling, there may be no stopping it.
By gametime, I won’t be surprised to see that Adam Dunn and Randy Wells have been added to the rosters. I was initially taken aback by Aramis Ramirez’s decision yesterday to turn down an All-Star invitation, but now I’m with him.
