Cubs 2 @ Diamondbacks 8
Apologies for the tardy recap. I didn’t watch the game last night (can you blame me?), and forgot it was mine to cover.
From what I can tell, the Cubs were a collective no-show at the plate until Soriano’s two-run bomb in the ninth. Justin Germano and the cast of cast-offs in the bullpen through eight innings of batting practice, so the game was long over before Soriano broke up the shutout.
So to avoid losing 100 games, the Cubs need to run the table the rest of the way. Word is that manager Dale gave the team an impassioned pre-game speech before today’s game. Fortunately, VFTB has unbelievable clubhouse access, and we’ve obtained this exclusive video.
