Jeff Samardzija had a pretty amazing night last night.Dexter Fowler not so much. Samardzija gave up 2 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks in 8 full innings. Probably the best part about that was the 8 innings.Because that was only 108 pitches.The other best part was the 2-run dinger he hit off Jon Garland.What a performance, and Dexter Fowler was there to watch it all. Cubs 6 Rockies 3.
