Third Inning (Bottom)
Well Sean Marshall has come in to try to give the Cubs a lift. After an anemic showing by the Cubs offense in the top of the inning, Marshall tries to get the juices flowing the boys in blue. Of course Marshall walked the first guy that he faced. Now, after another walk, we’re sitting at an 0-2 count on Volquez. Dang, a ball.
Lieber’s 2 inning performance is only going to tax the already tired bullpen. We’d expect him to go more innings if he was coming out of the pen. Oh well. Marshall struck him out swinging. No damage done.
