Anthony Rizzo did not start so might as well skip this game, I’m kidding of course.  Rodrigo Lopez started this game and left after one pitch with a sore groin.  Jay Jackson jumped into duty and was terrific going five innings allowing one run on three hits, he walked two, and struck out five.  Carlos Marmol got some work in on his way back to the Cubs, he worked one inning, giving up a hit and a walk with a strike out.  The I-Cubs only managed five hits, but had just enough to pull out a 2-1 win.  Luis Valbuena was 1-for-4 at the plates with a game winning solo home run in the ninth inning.
