Cubs Slaughter White Sox behind dominant Samardzija

Cubs 5-27 line

Full Box Score

It doesn’t get much better than that, the Cubs absolutely handing the Sox their lunch tonight as Jeff Samardzija had the Sox looking like a triple A team.  Samardzija was brilliant, as he went the distance for the complete game shut out and victory.  That last sentence doesn’t really tell the story of how dominant Samardzija was, so I’ll add one more.  Shark not only went the distance, he gave up only two hits, while walking two and striking out eight.  For a pitcher that has lost 1-0 already twice this year the Cubs offensive outburst must have been a welcomed site.  The top of the order led the charge in this one, the one through four hitters were a combined 9-for-18 with a double, a triple, a home run, and six RBI’s.  Beating the Sox should count for two wins, you know, because it feels so good.
