We swept the card yesterday at the Daily Grind, going a perfect 4-0. Let’s take a look at a quick recap. Edwin Jackson got shelled again. The over was a winner by the 4th inning. I’m not sure how he gets another start in a Cubs uniform. Baltimore got to Hector Noesi in the 4th inning and held on to beat the White Sox 4-3. Our 2 play of the days were easy wins. The Angels beat up Clay Buchholz, but lost their ace, Richards, to a devastating knee injury. Lastly, Jorge De La Rosa won at home, again.
