Cubs Win Rain Shortened Contest

Sean Marshall allowed just one run on four hits over six innings as the game was called after a rain delay that lasted a little over an hour.

Pirates Notebook: Which side was the ump on?

A lot has been made this series about the favorable strike zone for the Milwaukee Brewers in their series sweep against the Pirates. Adam LaRoche made those concerns public with this quote in the PPG: “Go talk to the home plate umpire,” Pirates first baseman Adam LaRoche said of Marty Foster, whom players felt gave far more favorable calls to Gallardo than Ian Snell, who walked four and struck out five. “He seemed to...
