Marmol Plays Hero for Reds

It doesn’t get any worse than this, 8 innings of dominant stuff from Dempster only to have Carlos Marmol come in and crap all over it.  Not the first time either, as Marmol has been an absolute disaster this year.  After building a 3-0 lead behind solo home runs from Castro, LaHair (what else in new), and Soto, yes Soto, the Cubs were sitting pretty.  Then the wheels fell off.  Marmol faced five batters in the ninth and retired none of them en route to yet another blown save.  Rafael Dolis was able to keep the Cubs alive by cleaning up Marmol’s mess, but the damage had already been done, on the scoreboard and mentally.  The Cubs were done after Marmol blew the save, it was obvious, and the Reds made it official in the bottom of the 10th on a sacrifice fly by Rolen to win 4-3.  Full box score, and highlights after the jump.
