Soriano – Jackson Sink The Ship
Alfonso Soriano sent two long balls out to the fans in the stands, each with a runner on, and the Cubs sank the Pirate ship, 4-1.
I have been a harsh critic of today’s Cubs starting pitcher, Edwin Jackson.
Jackson apparently saw my previous advice which, is really
Sandy Koufax’s advice, and followed through with more variance than usual on his pitches.
The heat was on but, not always, and just as Koufax said, ‘I didn’t become the pitcher I was until, I made them hit the ball.’ That’s what Jackson seemed to do today. He didn’t allow hits, he made them hit the ball mostly on the ground.
Jackson left in the 6th yielding 1 ER on 4 hits, struck 3 out, and walked 2. More details on Saturday’s game from the Official Cubs Home Page.
