Cubs, simCubs, and MLB news

The simCubs put it on the simPadres yesterday, knocking balls over the wall as is their custom.

Tyler Chatwood started but didn’t go five full even though he looked capable of doing so as Brandon Palmer hit the gong early as is his custom and brought Jesus Luzardo into maintain the status quo. Luzardo got the W for his efforts, and added an earned run as Dan Winkler, who had relieved him, let one in trying to make a sweet double play. The Friars scored, but too little, and too late, and the Cubs will try to ensure at least a split, as is their custom, today at PetCo Park.

Al will have more information about today’s game in the game post (at 2:30 pm CT, Tuesday, for our 3 p.m. start). I’ll drop the specific URL to the contest in the game thread, but you can lurk at the BCB Media Center and catch it there as well. All past games and highlights reels are available there too, if you want the full #simCubs experience.
