No Cubs sweep tonight
But Samardzjia gets first hit
And it's a home run!
Wednesday's game was a little tighter than the first two in Milwaukee, and the Cubs came up short. But the long haired pitcher from Notre Dame became the first
Cubs rookie since Hee Sop Choi (9-2-2002) to get a home run for his first major league hit.
Except for Samardzjia, the Cubs just couldn't figure out Brewers Rookie pitcher Chris Narverson, who struck out 10 in just 5 2/3 innings. So, for the third time in 6 games, a good Cubs pitching performance leads to a loss.
Now it's on to San Francisco for four games against the Giants before returning home for the final six games of the season.
