Game Recap: Diamondbacks 12, Cubs 3 - Blow Out

In a game of stunning mediocrity and epic defeat, the Cubs were handed their 77nd loss of the season yesterday against an Arizona team that sucks golf balls through garden hoses.  Still, in a series that matters none, these things are bound to happen.

The Cubs pitcher was Tom Gorzelanny, who is in rotation audition mode until next April.  He didn't do much to help his cause, serving up 7 runs in 3 innings of work, but nobody's going to remember how badly he got his ass kicked once March rolls around.

He was relieved by a team of pitchers who all proceeded to bumble their way through the game, except for Berg and Grabow who both only allowed hits but held the 'backs at bay. 

Offensively, the most impressive thing to happen was that Kosuke Fukudome walked 3 times.  That's how you can tell that it was a meh-diocre day. 

Today's game is an early one, for which I am sure we are all excited to watch.  Right?  Amiright?
