Well that makes sense though. They need to draw on his playoff experience.

So is Locke back, or are the Cubs just not very good at this whole "baseball" thing?

Both? I think he only had one walk.. Bad team or not, control was 90 percent of his problem.

61% strikes tonight - he's in the mid-50s for the year. One walk tonight and three hits. I'll take it.

All 4 Pirates hits were in the 4th inning. Pretty sure their only other baserunner was the leadoff Harrison HBP. There's something to be said for bunching your hits.

Sanchez works a walk against a lefty, as he tends to do.

I am still incredibly nervous to see Marte out there when he isn't 100%.

I don't have the same reaction to Clint Barmes' music as I do to Stone Cold's music.

The Cult of Mercer appreciates the insurance run provided by Jordy.

I'll take it but should have been a 2 run double if Marte doesn't get picked off.
