Baseball Box Score: Cubs Crash, Sox Outlast Rays

By Angie Wiatrowski in News on Apr 10, 2011 2:00PM

Brewers 6, Cubs 0

Despite their history of success over the Brewers (107-95 heading into this season), the tables have turned and the Cubs took a rough 6-0 loss in Milwaukee Saturday night. Matt Garza took the fall again, and it wasn’t pretty. He got Prince Fielder in an 0-2 count three times yet sat back and watched him slam three doubles and drive in 4 runs for Milwaukee.

Garza left the mound with two outs in the sixth inning, bases loaded, and the Cubs behind 5-0. In his two starts Garza has given up 8 runs on 20 hits, striking out 20 and walking 3; one intentional.

The Cubs offense pretty much disappeared. Carlos Pena struck out twice and left five men on base in his first two at-bats. They will get another shot at Milwaukee Sunday afternoon before heading to Houston Monday.

White Sox 4, Rays 2

After making his first start with the White Sox, pitcher Phil Humber pitched a career-high six innings to lead the South Siders 4-2 over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday. Humber (making just his third career start) allowed one run and 4 hits, striking out 4 and walking 2.

Humber had previously pitched for the Mets, Twins, and Royal sand is filling in the fifth spot of the Sox rotation while Jake Peavy rehabs a shoulder injury.

After a 1-1 tie in the fourth, Paul Konerko led off with a double, A.J. Pierzynski and Mark Teahen walked letting Brent Morel give the Sox a 2-1 lead after an infield single.
Will Ohman and Sergio Santos each pitched a scoreless inning of relief before Chris Sale closed out the game. The Sox continue their series vs. the Rays Sunday afternoon.
