Nate Schierholtz is having the kind of season that makes contending clubs interested in dealing for him. He showed why there is such interest with a career-high five-RBI night Wednesday in the Chicago Cubs’ 12-inning 7-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
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.
Ian Kennedy pitched seven strong innings, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks past a Chicago Cubs split squad 3-2 Monday.
The Arizona Diamondbacks put one rookie on the mound and another in the No. 5 spot in the batting order in a game they had to win.
