6/9 Samardzija roughed up
It was a tough day for Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija. He gave up eight runs, including six in the fourth, against the Twins. Samardzija entered the game with a 2.26 ERA in his last eight starts, and had not given up more than five runs. On Saturday, he was charged with eight runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings, matching his shortest start of the season. It’s the most runs off a Cubs starter this season.
