Game 2- Cubs at Reds- April 10, 2010- 12:10 PM

Game Stats   Season Stats  
Innings 7 Starts 2
Pitches 110 Quality Starts 1
Hits 6 Record 1-1
Walks 2 Strikeouts 10
Strikeouts 9 ERA  11.88 (–from 54.00)
Earned runs 3 WHIP  1.92

 How bad are things for you, Z, when the opposing pitcher got beat up in his last start, but his ERA is still 10% that of yours (Aaron Harang; his ERA was 5.4)?  All in all, you had a pretty solid game.  You punished the leadoff hitter all day long (1-6, 1 BB, 3 Ks), and the heart of the order struggled (1-7, 2 BB, 1 HR, 2 RBI).  The only damage was Brandon Phillips’ dinger.  Your pitch count was pretty high for 7 innings of work, but that’s going to happen when you whiff 9 batters.  I’ll give you credit here, Carlos.  This was an excellent bounce-back for you from the last start.  Most importantly, you put the Cubbies in position to finish the road trip at .500.  But don’t get crazy…  you’re still only mediocre on the year.
