Carlos had the green light on 1-1. Kind of surprised there.
Edwards a bit scatter-armed. Begging for trouble.
I'd love to see it, but I'm doubtful.
Martinez with a big swing, protects on a 3-2 pitch.
And then the double play. Next time, keep taking so Dexter gets his shot?
He would be a No. 8 hitter, which doesn't help the middle-of-the-order problem.
New Cubs pitcher, same nibbling. For a 1-0 game, the Cubs haven't featured the sharpest pitching ever.
This isn't the greatest bullpen ever assembled. As they did last year, they might have to add.
Diaz works to 3-2, sets up a hit and run . . . and pops out. Oh well.
Just tried the hit and run. Stole two bases earlier in the game.
Koji Uehara must be getting paid by the hour. Brought the game to a screeching halt.
After three strikeouts, Jhonny Peralta flirts with danger . . . and then rips a single to give Molina his chance.
That seemed like it took a hour, but the Cubs did stick another zero on the Cards batting order.
Yeah, lots of swinging from the heels out there. Not a pretty night for hitters.
At least he could still reach the base as he flew through.
The top third of the order looks fine. But then what?
