7/16 Talk to Larry

Cubs pitching coach Larry Rothschild made two changes in Thursday’s game, not Lou PIniella. Any reason Piniella didn’t go to the mound?

“Two young pitchers,” Piniella said Friday. “I sent [Rothschild] out in case he had a particular message for [the pitcher]. We’ve got four young relievers out there and sometimes a pitching coach can give them a little pointer. We tried it last night.”

Rothschild made the switch when rookie Justin Berg entered the game in the eighth and when Andrew Cashner came in in the ninth.
