Game 91 Thread / Giants @ Cubs (1 of 4)
vs. Rich Hill
The Cubs have won 8 of 9 at home. From the press notes available at MLB.com
, Cubs relievers lead the league in stranding inherited runners at an 81.2% clip...yesterday was the fourth time this year that the bullpen has thrown 5 or more shutout innings in a game...Marmol has the 2nd best ERA among relievers in the NL.
Word is Billy Petrick is being called up for the game, no idea on the corresponding roster move though.
The broadcast says Billy Petrick was called up and Rob Bowen was designated for assignment. I can't say I saw that one coming. There's still a shot that Bowen could slip through waivers and stick with the club though. The Cubs really couldn't just get rid of Cesar Izturis?
