5/22 Volstad wins; Rizzo HRs

Chris Volstad got a win. The right-hander struck out six and gave up four runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings in Iowa’s 18-8 win over Tacoma on Tuesday. It was Volstad’s first start since being sent to the Minor League team. Anthony Rizzo was 3-for-5, hitting his 15th homer, and raised his season RBI total to 42. Luis Valbuena had three of the Iowa Cubs’ 17 hits. Tacoma committed six errors in the game. Steve Clevenger, making a rehab start,¬†started as DH and was 1-for-2.

Who’s this Rizzo kid? Must be LUCKY player because I’m sure if he had skills the Cubs would promote him…..

But Joey he needs to learn more…. He will have to stay at AAA ball until we have room for him, and until he learns how toooooooo do something. Why would it have to make sense??? Its not like we need more power, or run production. And… we will beable to control him longer, you know after we sign him for twelve years and he sucks.
