Jeff Samardzija opposes Wade Miley tonight at Fenway Park.
Chicago players were upset about the news of teammate Alfonso Soriano’s impending trade to the Yankees, and manager Dale Sveum thought that played a part in the Cubs’ 3-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Wade Miley outpitched Matt Garza in eight strong innings, Justin Upton had three RBIs and the Arizona Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep with a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.
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.
