Soto, Cubs get their revenge on Suppan, Brewers: 19-5
did fan 5 in 3 IP...but also walked 4 and gave up an earned run.
Derrick Turnbow came in to work the 8th--4 walks, 4 hits, and 6 ER later, Yost had to yank him...he managed to get two outs. Turnbow's ERA for the year now sits at 15.63.
Ryan Braun had 3 RBI's, while Mike Rivera drove in the other 2 on his first homer of the year.
Day game tomorrow...Gallardo vs. Zambrano...to determine who takes the series.
The Cubs sent ten batters to the plate in the first inning Wednesday night...and since only one was stranded, the Cubs had a 6-0 lead after one.
And it didn't get any better.
In both the 6-run first and the 5-run fourth, Cubs' catcher Geovanny Soto pounded a 3-run home run--first off of Brewers' starter Jeff Suppan and then another off of Brewers' reliever Brian Shouse.
Brewers' starter Jeff Suppan was just plain awful--3 2/3rds IP, 11 hits, 11 runs (8 earned) and only one K. Seth McClung
