    Any word on Diaz? is there a timetable for him to return?

    also any word on who the closer is? I am starting to consider giving Brebbia a shot at it, i like his stuff

    Ouch, not a good first inning for Martinez. Slacks on defense allowing Gordon to take an extra base, then called out on strikes at bat.

    Gyorko called out as well, on a pitch that looked high and outside. But he swung at a lousy pitch for strike two.

    Only the first inning, but this club continues to make mental and defensive miscues that hamper their game. The blame for that is largely on the coaching staff.

    Voit having a good game so far. He has homered and doubled, knocking in three runs, and the Redbirds lead 3-2 in the 5th.

    Milwaukee leading the Cubs 5-0 in the 3rd at Wrigley in a makeup game.

    Cubs had bases loaded with nobody out in the 3rd and only scored one run. 9-1 Milwaukee after 3

    Glad Matheny was smart enough to remove Wacha there against Stanton

    Wacha looking pretty good again. Grichuk with a homerun. He needed that!

    That extra run could prove huge.

    Carpenter seems to be most affected by the shift of anyone this year. He is torching the ball but it always seems to be right at someone. The final out of the 6th is a great example.

    It proved crucial already. Lyons wasn’t sharp and Cecil couldn’t get Ozuna…4-3 Cards.

    Oh with the save. Cards salvage a split with the Marlins.

    Oh closes it out…4-3 Cards. Good overall job by the bullpen today. Need a sweep of the Mets to feel good going into the break.

    Nice win. Really needed 3 of 4 in that series, but a bad start by Leake was the big factor in keeping us from it. Wacha is really throwing hard this year. He seems healthy, and if his stamina holds up he might just be our best pitcher in the second half.

    If both guys pitch close to the top of their games the remainder of the year, Martinez and Wacha could be the keys to making a second half run at the division title.
