Starting everyone today as well. though not loving starting Beachy, but would beat myself up if he goes out there and throws a gem.
Started Dempster and it worked well, giving up 6 H, 2 ER, 1 walk and striking out 11 over 6 innings (and getting the win). Bumgarner seems to continue get screwed, don't seem too much wrong with his numbers: 5 H, 3 ER, 2 Walks and struck out 6 over 6 innings, got the loss though. Granted the best Bum could of got was a no decision considering how terrible the bullpen was.
Hitter wise, Huff did well 2/4 for 2 RBI no Ding Dongs though, Ross was the one who got the knock (2 RBI, his only hit in 4 PA). Torres stole his 2nd base of the year and ended up 3/5 with 2 R. Posey helped your avg today but that is about it (2/4, 2 K).
On the other side, it was the Cubs 1, 2, and 6 hitters that cleaned up. Castro went 3/5 with 2 Runs and 2 RBI, Barney stayed hot also going 3/5 with 2 Runs and 3 RBI, while R. Johnson joined the 3/5 parade, adding 1 Run and 4 RBI. Demps got involve in the scoring even (1 Run, 1 BB, 1 Strikeout).
Didn't see the game, so just going off reading the box scores. Happy had Dempster and Castro though, especially when most of my SS on other teams have been mediocre/terrible early on.
