Afternoon Box Score: Sox Hold On, Phillies Trip Up Cubs
By Chuck Sudo in News on Jun 12, 2011 9:30PM
Sean Marshall, who has been one of the more reliable members of the Cubs bullpen this season, gave up runs in consecutive games for the first time since last July as Philadelphia took three of four from the Cubs. The Cubs scored all of their runs in the first inning, two off an Aramis Ramirez home run. The Cubs received more bad news today when Reed Johnson was hit in the head during a rehab stint at AAA Iowa.
Phillip Humber once again pitched seven strong innings and Adam Dunn cracked a three-run shot that landed somewhere near the Skyway as the White Sox took three of four from Oakland and climbed to within 3-1/2 games of first place in the AL Central. Sergio Santos gave up a run in the ninth inning, but held on to earn his 12th save of the season.
