This was one hell of a wacky play from Sunday's Cubs-Padres game. With the bases loaded and none out in the top of the 13th, Nate Schierholtz hit a grounder to first baseman Jesus Guzman that looked like it would be a surefire double play ball. Except...things didn't really go that way for the Padres.
As he went to run out of the batters box, Schierholtz twisted his ankle...
The Chicago Cubs came into the day with a series draw against the San Diego Padres after splitting the first two games. Today’s pitching match up saw former Cub Andrew Cashner against southpaw Chris Rusin, who has been pitching extremely well since filling Matt Garza’s rotation spot.
Runs were hard to come by in this game, and that was pretty evident just by looking at the box...

In other Cubs moves, left-handed pitcher Gerardo Concepcion cleared waivers and was assigned...
Nate Schierholtz was the one player the Phillies got in return for Hunter Pence who was not only big league-ready, but had already accrued a fair amount of major league service time. A kind of enigma in San Francisco, Schierholtz came to Philly with the promise of consistent playing time and an opportunity to prove himself to his new manager as an everyday player. It was a new start...
Nate Schierholtz had already voiced that he wasn't happy with the way that the Giants had treated him earlier this season and now that he is in Philadelphia he has a few more thoughts to share on his time with the Giants.
