5/31/09 Los Angeles Dodgers 8, Chicago Cubs 2

Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL
Game 4 of 4

In this 4-game series closer, the Cubs averted a series loss by splitting. This was Marshall’s veritable swan song as an effective starter – he needs to stay in the pen, that’s where his best work occurs. However, the first inning cut the deepest for him; 5 back-to-back Dodger hits (6 total in the inning), 5 runs scored. Reed Johnson (CHC CF) helped the Cubs get on the board after his 2RBI double in the 6th, but it wasn’t enough to recover. Dodgers, ehhhh!!

DODGERS 8 12 0
CUBS 2 9 2

The game was called on ESPN by Jon Miller, Steve Phillips, and Joe Morgan. I don’t like to drift toward the negative, but here goes: Phillips should be campaigning for a job at MLBN right now. There are 2 good reasons NOT to watch a game on ESPN: Jon Miller and Joe Morgan. They need to give it up, they are worthless to me as analysts and actually detract from my enjoyment of the game. BAH. They stink.
